In y = mx + b, which value is the slope and which is the y intercept? When a linear equation is not given in slope-intercept form, the coefficient of the x-term may not represent the slope and the constant term may not represent the y-intercept. For example, the graph of 2 x + 3y = 12 does not have slope 2 and it does not have y-intercept 12. To find the correct slope and y-intercept, the equation can first be written in slope-intercept form. Please demonstrate how to do this explaining and showing all work. Then identify the slope and y intercept of the equation.
