a) Slope-intercept form is y=mx+b. You must solve for 'y', and make the 'x' term the first one on the right side of the equation when you are finished.

b) The slope is the 'm' in the equation. it is the number (called the coefficient) that is with the 'x'

c) The y-intercept is the 'b' in the equation

d) If you get this far and someone hasn't already given you the answer, please post a reply and I will help you with this one. Thanks!
