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=56
b=-1
The slope of the line is the value of m, and the y-intercept is the value of b.
Slope: 56
y-intercept: -1
Slope: 56
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.

To write -1 as a fraction with a common denominator, multiply by 66.
f(1)=56-1⋅66
Combine -1 and 66.
f(1)=56+-1⋅66
Combine the numerators over the common denominator.
f(1)=5-1⋅66
Simplify the numerator.

Multiply -1 by 6.
f(1)=5-66
Subtract 6 from 5.
f(1)=-16
f(1)=-16
Move the negative in front of the fraction.
f(1)=-16
The final answer is -16.
