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 ...
Mar 18, 2011 ... We have discussed in context the origin (click here and here) of the linear
equation y = ax + b , where a and b are real numbers. We have also ...
Y = mx + b is the equation for a straight line. "B" is the point value of where the
line intercepts the y axis, called the y intercept. "M" is the value of the slope of the
Oct 1, 2013 ... Where b = the y intercept (where the graph crosses the y-axis), m is the ... Basic
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 .
... way of expressing linear equations by using the slope-intercept form y = mx + b
. ... A line that passes through the origin has a y-intersect of zero, b = 0, and ...
For example, a common equation, $y=mx+b$ , (namely the slope-intercept form,
... The origin of the name "linear" comes from the fact that the set of solutions of ...
