y is the variable

There is no variable, and the equation is not valid.

26, in that situation just add the negative number to the answer to find the variable

A negative plus a negative still gives a negative answer.

Depends on the numbers. Whichever number is greater determines the sign for the equation.

This equation is unsolvable as x2 cannot be a negative number as would be suggested by this equation. Any number, even a negative, multiplied by itself will always give a positive number but this equation leaves you with x2 = -48

y=mx+b This is the slope intercept form of an equation. y is the dependent variable m is the slope x is the independent variable b is the y-intercept To answer your question, the slope (m) is the rise/run of the equation. It describes the steepness, incline, or grade of a line. The higher the slope, the greater the incline. The lower the slope, the slower the incline. If the slope is a negative, then the line will be at a decline. The greater a negative number the slope is, the greater the decline.
