Negative slop term clarification

From Kaplan:

Is the -5.9 the negative slope term?

Standard linear equation is y = mx + b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept. :nerd_face:

Exactly. My mind is still twisted around due to y = b+bx and not y=mx+b.

Thank you.

Y= b + bx??? Who taught you to use b in 2 different places??? :-1:

Probably wears a clip-on tie, amirite??? :wink:

I was lazy and didn’t type out b sub-zero (intercept) and b sub-one (slope).
