    The value of m is the slope

    If you have a equation like this:

    y = 2x

    2 is your slope. Your slope is always rise/run. This mean that for this equation you are going to rise 2 and run 1 since x is going to be equal to 1

    The value of b is the y-intercept

    For the equation above, you can see no b which means that you start at (0,0)

    In this second equation:

    y = x + 2

    The b is equal to 2, so the y – intercept is 2 and you are going to start at the point (0,2)

    m is the slope and b is the y-intercept
