y=mx+b

Your equation can be made in a variety of forms, however, y=mx+b, or slope intercept form, is the most convenient form of equation for our line creators to make. We would greatly appreciate it if you would submit your equations in this form.

What is slope?

Slope is a ratio that describes how steep (or flat) a line is. Slope can be positive, negative, or even zero, but a straight line has only one slope. Slope is expressed in the change in "y" over the change in "x". A slope of zero is a horizontal line, while a vertical has no slope.

Please express your slope as either a whole number or a fraction!

What is the y-intercept?

The point(s) where a line crosses the y-axis. A function has, at most, one y-intercept, but a relation may have several. The y-intercept of a graph is important because it is the starting value.

Please do not represent the y-intercept as a coordinate pair. Instead, use a full number or a fraction.
