Find the value of the slope.
Slope is equal to the change in y over the change in x, or rise over run.
m=change in ychange in x
The change in x is equal to the difference in x-coordinates (also called run), and the change in y is equal to the difference in y-coordinates (also called rise).
Substitute in the values of x and y into the equation to find the slope.
Simplify the numerator.
Multiply -1 by 25.
Subtract 25 from 34.
Simplify the denominator.
Multiply -1 by 6.
Subtract 6 from 9.
Divide 9 by 3.
Find the value of the y-intercept.
Substitute the value of m into the slope-intercept form of the equation, y=mx+b.
Substitute the value of x into the slope-intercept form of the equation, y=mx+b.
Substitute the value of y into the slope-intercept form of the equation, y=mx+b.
Rewrite the equation as (3)⋅(6)+b=25.
Multiply 3 by 6.
Move all terms not containing b to the right side of the equation.
Subtract 18 from both sides of the equation.
Subtract 18 from 25.
The values of the slope and y-intercept are m=3 and b=7.
