```Lesson 12
Name: Writing a Linear Equation in Slope-Intercept Form
Study the example problem showing how to write an
equation in slope-intercept form. Then solve problems 1â6.
Example
y
Write an equation for the line shown in the
diagram.

The line passes through (0, 3), so the
y-intercept is 3. Use the slope-intercept form
y 5 mx 1 b to write an equation.
y 5 mx 1 b
y 5 2x 1 3
Substitute 2 for m and 3 for b.
An equation for the line is y 5 2x 1 3.
1 How is the equation y 5 2x similar to the equation
y 5 2x 1 3 in the example problem? How is it different?
2 Graph y 5 2x in the diagram above. Compare the graphs.
Does either graph represent a proportional relationship?
Explain.
Vocabulary
slopeâ the ratio of the vertical
change (rise) to the horizontal
change (run) between any
two points on a line.
y-interceptâ the y-coordinate
of the point where a graph
intersects the y-axis.
