Feb 10, 2009 ... Hello, could someone please explain to me why the equation y=mx+b uses 'm' for
slope and 'b' for y-intercept? This has always bothered me ...
In the slope-intercept formula, y = mx + b, why is 'b' used to represent ... If you
have some historical evidence to support an alternative theory, I'd ...
It interests me that on this continent the typical form is y = mx + b, ... write a brief

linear equation formula: y = mx + b, where “m” is the slope.
A positive y-intercept means the line crosses the y-axis above the origin, ... If you
put those values into the slope-intercept form, y = mx + b, you get the equation .
