The slope-intercept form is y=mx+b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.
y=mx+b
Reorder 5 and -x.
y=-x+5
y=-x+5
Use the slope-intercept form to find the slope and y-intercept.
Tap for more steps…
Find the values of m and b using the form y=mx+b.
m=-1
b=5
The slope of the line is the value of m, and the y-intercept is the value of b.
Slope: -1
y-intercept: 5
Slope: -1
y-intercept: 5
