The **Slope Intercept** equation for a line (y = mx +b) computes the y coordinate on a line based on the linear coefficients of slope (m) and intercept (b) and the value of x. If you input the slope and the y-intercept, along with a value for X, the equation returns the value for Y corresponding to that X.

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Enter the following:

- (m) this is the slope of the line.
- (b) this is the y intercept
- (x) this is the value of x

The calculator returns the value of y cooresponding to the x value on the line.
