# Chapter 5 - Linear Functions - 5-3 Slope-Intercept Form - Practice and Problem-Solving Exercises: 39

$m=9; b=1/2$

#### Work Step by Step

We need to put the equation in the form y=mx+b: $y-9x=1/2 \\\\ y=9x+1/2$ In order to figure out what the slope is, we must figure out what x is being multiplied by. x is being multiplied by 9, so we know that m, the slope, is 9. We now must figure out what is being added to x. 1/2 is being added to x, so we know that b, the y intercept, is 1/2.
