### We’ve enabled step-by-step help for this quiz

With bytelearn’s quizzes, your students receive targeted step-by-step help if they’re stuck or have questions, and you receive clear insights into their knowledge gaps.

Word problems of linear equations generally deal with changes over the course of a time. When changes over the course of a time are the focus, we take the help of slope-intercept form to find out our answers. The standard equation of the slope-intercept form is y = mx + b, where m is the slope of the standard equation. We can easily interpret slope and y intercept in word problems by following some simple steps.
