 slope and y-intercept Explanation:La ecuación de una recta es, formalización de la relación lineal entre las variables, es y = ax + b donde el valor de a corresponde a la pendiente de la recta, y el de b, llamado ordenada al origen (del valor de la variable independiente) representa el apartamiento de la proporcionalidad. In the equation of a straight line (when the equation is written in the useful form "y = mx + b"), the slope is the number "m" multiplied on x, and "b" is the y-intercept, where the line crosses the y-axis. For this reason, this useful form of the line equation is called the "slope-intercept form" http://www.purplemath.com/modules/slopyint.htm
