When you are trying to graph an equation.

If the slope-intercept equation is in the form: y = mx + b then the y-coordinate of the intercept is b

You cannot.

In the case that you are using Slope-Intercept Form, no, you only plot two points: the y-intercept and one other point. If you don't use Slope-Intercept Form, then you have to use three points.

You use point-slope form to find the equation of a line if you only have a point and a slope or if you are just given two point. Usually you will convert point-slope form to slope-intercept form to make it easier to use.

y=mx+b where m=slope and b=y-intercept. x and y are variables

When formatting the equation of a given line into slope-intercept form.

Use the slope-intercept form of the line: y = mx + b Here, "m" is the slope, and "b" is the y-intercept, so just replace these variables with the corresponding slope and intercept - and you got your equation. And PLEASE don't ask lots of almost-identical questions, with different slopes and y-intercept. It is really easy to replace the slope and the intercept in this equation.

y intercept is b and slope is m Equation is y = mx + b For example if y intercept (where x = 0) is -3 and slope is 4 then y = 4x-3

Use: (y2 -y1)/(x2 -x1) to find the slope. Use: y -y1 = m(x -x1) to find the slope intercept equation whereas m is the slope.
