# Graphing lines from slope-intercept form review

CCSS Math: 8.F.A.1, 8.F.A.3, HSF.IF.C.7, HSF.IF.C.7a

Slope intercept form is y=mx+b, where m is slope and b is the y-intercept. We can use this form of a linear equation to draw the graph of that equation on the x-y coordinate plane.

Slope intercept form is $y=mx+b$, where $m$ is slope and $b$ is the $y$-intercept.

Slope-intercept form is nice when you're drawing graphs.

For example, imagine we're given the equation $y=2x+7$ and asked to graph it.

Straight from the equation, we know the $y$-intercept is $7$.

And we know the slope is $2$.

So, for every one unit we go to the right, we must go up two units:

Here is our final graph:
