## Algebra 1: Common Core (15th Edition)

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