Slope Intercept Form

**y = mx + c**

**Slope Intercept Form** is also called as gradient, y-intercept form. Slope Intercept Form is used to generate the Equation of a straight line with a slope m and y - intercept c of the line.

**Examples:**

Calculate the equation of the line with slope of 4 and y-intercept 3.

slope m = 4.

slope c = 3.

**Substitute in the formula as :**

y = mx + c

y = (4)x + (3)

y = 4x + 3

Equation = 4x + 3 -y

**Equation of the Line = 4x -y + 3**
