Find the ‘b' in the linear equation y= 5x – 6.

  1. 6
  2. 5
  3. y
  4. -6

Hint:

in y = mx + b
b is the intercept .

The correct answer is: -6


    Given y = 5x-6
    b = ?  ,
    Step 1 : The slope-intercept form is y=mx +b, m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.
    Step 2 : In y=5x-6,
    the intercept is -6
    So , b = -6 .

    b , is the constant part .
