same thing. but its easy to change y=b+mx to y=mx+b
y = mx + b y - mx = b
b = y - mx.
in the equation: y=mx+b , the y-intercept is represented by "b".
y=mx+b mx+b=y (mx means multipy.) Hope this helps! -natali4everca
It is: y = x+5 in y = mx+b form
There is no difference; it is a matter of choice and convention as to what letter is used.
b stands for the y-intercept
b is the intercept through the y axis
