# Graph y=5/4x+1 y=54x+1
Use the slope-intercept form to find the slope and y-intercept.
The slope-intercept form is y=mx+b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.
y=mx+b
Find the values of m and b using the form y=mx+b.
m=54
b=1
The slope of the line is the value of m, and the y-intercept is the value of b.
Slope: 54
y-intercept: 1
Slope: 54
y-intercept: 1
Any line can be graphed using two points. Select two x values, and plug them into the equation to find the corresponding y values.
Choose 0 to substitute in for x to find the ordered pair.
Replace the variable x with 0 in the expression.
f(0)=5(0)4+1
Simplify the result.
Multiply 5 by 0.
f(0)=04+1
Divide 0 by 4.
f(0)=0+1
f(0)=1
1
1
The y value at x=0 is 1.
y=1
y=1
Choose 1 to substitute in for x to find the ordered pair.
Replace the variable x with 1 in the expression.
f(1)=5(1)4+1
Simplify the result.
Multiply 5 by 1.
f(1)=54+1
Write 1 as a fraction with a common denominator.
f(1)=54+44
Combine the numerators over the common denominator.
f(1)=5+44
f(1)=94
94
94
The y value at x=1 is 94.
y=94
y=94
Create a table of the x and y values.
