write in slope form

y = mx + b ; m = slope

y = 6x + b

Now use the coordinates (0,4), 0 for x, 4 for y to solve for b (constant)

4 = 6(0) + b

4 = 0 + b

b = 4

y = 6x + 4

Hi Eugenia;

The slope-intercept form equation is...

y=mx+b

m=slope

b=y-intercept, the value of y when x=0

The information provided is that the slope is 6.

The y-intercept, value of b, is 4.

y=6x+4
