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".

The equation y = mx + b is the equation for a line in slope-intercept form. The slope is m, and the y-axis intercept is b.

y=mx+b mx+b=y (mx means multipy.) Hope this helps! -natali4everca

y = mx + b y - mx = b

b = y - mx.

y=mx+b mx+b=y (mx means multipy.) Hope this helps! -natali4everca

m

Yes.

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 is the intercept through the y axis
