# Chapter 5 - Linear Functions - 5-3 Slope-Intercept Form - Practice and Problem-Solving Exercises: 14

$m=-.2; b=3$

#### Work Step by Step

This equation is in the form y=mx+b. In order to figure out what the slope is, we must figure out what x is being multiplied by. x is being multiplied by -.2, so we know that m, the slope, is -.2. We now must figure out what is being added to x. 3 is being added to x, so we know that b, the y intercept, is 3.
