Friends! Previously we have discussed about equilateral triangle area calculator and In today’s session we are going to discuss about Intercepts use in Slope formula, The concepts of X intercept and Y intercept of a line is one of the interesting concepts in the mathematical world and it offers a large trigonometric help as well as equations help in maths. X and Y intercepts are where a graph crosses either the x-axis or the y-axis. In a simple mathematical manner, we can say that Intercept is a point which intersects on a curve in XY axis of a graph. In the graph of linear equation, a line consists of both X and Y axis.
An x- intercept is the one where the graph crosses the x-axis (that is where the value of y = 0) So, the common or general form of x-intercept is equal to (x, o) or where the value of variable y is 0. While, y-intercept of line is the one where the graph crosses the y-axis(that is where the value of x = 0). The common or general form of y-intercept is equal to (0, y) or where the value of variable x is 0. (want to Learn more about Intercepts, click here),
Slope of a line is a concept which tells us how a straight line angle away from the horizontal or, we can say that it describes the steepness, incline or grade of the straight line. It is also known as gradient of the line. The slope of a line including the x axis and y axis is represented by m and is defined as the change in the y coordinate divided by the corresponding change in the x coordinate, between two distinct points on the line.
The slope of a line is a number which calculates or defines its steepness denoted by the letter m. The slope through the points (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) is given as Slope Formula. ( m = y2-y1/x2-x1 ) where x1 is not equal to x2. In general, slope intercept form denotes the Slope Formula : y = mx + b. where m = slope of the line. b = Y intercept.
