If y = mx + b, then x = (y-b)/m (for m not equal to zero).

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

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

b = y - mx.

y = mx + b y - mx = b

y-b/x=m

the answer is: (y-b)/x = m y = mx + b y - b = mx (y-b)/x = m

If y = mx + b, then x = (y-b)/m (for m not equal to zero).

yes

It depends on what you are trying to solve for. Here is a solution for x... y = mx + b y - b = mx (y - b) / m = x Note: If m is zero, then there is no solution, because the line is horizontal

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

The x in y=mx+b is the independent variable. You could solve for x, making this a function of y, with simple algebra. y = mx + b y - b = mx (y-b)/m = x

in the equation: y=mx+b , the y-intercept is represented by "b".
