    Slope-intercept form:  y = mx + b

    (m is the slope, b is the y-intercept or the y value when x = 0 –> (0, y) or the point where the line crosses through the y-axis)

    John gets a new job and receives a $800 signing bonus. After that, he makes $400 a day.    [x = the number of days             y = total earnings]

    y = 400x + 800

    [John earns $400 per day(x) plus a signing bonus(initial payment before working) of $800 = total amount of money he earns]

    The slope is 400 or \frac{400}{1}

    The y-intercept is 800
