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

y = mx + b, just subtract mx to both sides -mx + y = b. If the slope is a fraction, it is nice to eliminate the denominator first, so go and multiply each term at both sides by the denominator. If both, the slope and the constant, are fractions, multiply each term at both sides by their least common denominator.

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

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

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.
