y=mx+b is the simple formula for a slope and b is the y-intercept.

Dennis Hatchett

In the problem you would use inversion get your answer. The answer for y=mx+b is b = y-mx.

Y=mx+b is the equation for the Rise over Run formula or the "slope" formula. The B stands for the y-intercept. !

In the slope-intercept form of a linear equation (y = mx + b), the "b" represents the y-intercept, or the y-coordinate of the point where the line crosses the y axis. !

b = y-m x in the equation y=mx+b. !
