Many linear equations are given in slope-intercept form (y = mx + b), and sometimes they must be converted to standard form (Ax + By = C). Converting slope-intercept to standard form is mostly a matter of converting frac... More »

Because most linear functions are given in slope-intercept form, they can be easier to work with than point-slope form. To convert, you must isolate the y variable, for which you may need a calculator. More » Math Algebra

Slope-intercept form is a method for writing a linear equation in which the equation is written using the general formula y = mx + b. In slope-intercept form, the variable m refers to the slope of the line, and the varia... More » Math Algebra

A slope intercept calculator is a tool used to determine the slope-intercept form of an equation for a line passing through two points on a Cartesian coordinates plane. Other uses include calculation of the slope itself ... More »

The slope intercept form for a line is expressed as y = mx + b. In that equation, y is the value of the y-coordinate, x is the value of the x-coordinate, m is the value of the slope, and b is the value of the y-intercept... More » Math Algebra

A slope intercept form converter is an online tool that helps students determine the slope intercept form of the equation of a straight line. A student supplies the tool with the x and y coordinates of the line in the fo... More »

The slope and the y-intercept of a line can be found graphically and mathematically. Use the slope equation and the slope intercept equation to find both variables mathematically, or view the graph of the line to determi... More »
