Rearranging the equation for m:y = mx +by - b = mx Take the y to the other side(y - b)/x = m Divide both sides by xm = (y - b)/x Swap sides

Slope-intercept form is y = mx + b5x + 9y = -36Subtract 5x from each side:9y = -5x - 36Divide everything by 9:y = -5/9x - 4

Y=mx+b

Slope intercept form looks like y=mx+b, so we want to get y on on side by itself. -4x+2y=2 Add 4x to both sides: 2y=2+4x Divide both sides by 2: y=1+2x or y=2x+1

That is called slope - intercept form

It is: y = x+5 in y = mx+b form

It is a straight line.

That is slope-intercept form of a line.

yes

It is: y = 5x+15

A linear equation in the slope intercept form or the standard form.

same thing. but its easy to change y=b+mx to y=mx+b

Standard form is y=mx+by=3x+5 is already in standard form.

That's it, just the way you said it:y = mx + b'm' is the slope'b' is the intercept

It is the equation of a straight line

There is no difference; it is a matter of choice and convention as to what letter is used.
