Below is the slope intercept form: y = mx + b where: m = slope; b = y-intercept. Using the above format,  y = 7x + 2 m = 7 ; b = 2 The slope of the equation is 7. The y-intercept of the equation is 2.

y=mx+b is the formula. m is the slope and b is the y-intercept. y-intercept is when x is 0 and x-intercept is when y is 0. So if x is 0, y=m(0)+b which is y=b. So on the graph y will be b when x is 0. So in y=7x+2, 7 is the slope and 2 is the y-intercept.
