Hello, the equation y = (3/2)x +1 is a line written in slope intercept form (y =mx + b). Here the slope (m) is equal to 3/2, and the intercept (b) is equal to 1.

hope that helps.

If the equation is in Slope-Intercept form, y=mx + b, then the slope = m and the y-intercept (the point where the line crosses the Y axis) is b (or the ordered pair (0,b) )

Your equation is already in slope-intercept form, so the slope is ... left for the student
