## How do you find the value of y?

Finding the y value is easy if you know the slope of the line and the x coordinate. Review the equation for the slope of a line. The equation for finding the slope is: m = [y1 – y2] / [x1 – x2]. If you know x, you can solve for y to find the y value for the slope of the line.

## What is Y in a formula?

Algebraically, a linear equation typically takes the form y = mx + b, where m and b are constants, x is the independent variable, y is the dependent variable. In a statistical context, a linear equation is written in the form y = a + bx, where aand b are the constants.

**What is the value of y math?**

The vertical value in a pair of coordinates. How far up or down the point is. The Y Coordinate is always written second in an ordered pair of coordinates (x,y) such as (12,5). In this example, the value “5” is the Y Coordinate.

### What is the value of the expression?

The value of a mathematical expression is the result of the computation described by this expression when the variables and constants in it are assigned values. The value of a function, given the value(s) assigned to its argument(s), is the quantity assumed by the function for these argument values.

### What is Y in algebra?

y is a variable just like x is a variable. So what’s a variable, right? It’s a symbol we use when we don’t know how many we have of something or when the number of them can change. y + 5 means we add 5 to whatever we decide y stands for. It could be any number, so we’re just holding its place with the variable.

**How do you use Y MX C equation?**

The general equation of a straight line is y = mx + c, where m is the gradient, and y = c is the value where the line cuts the y-axis. This number c is called the intercept on the y-axis. The equation of a straight line with gradient m and intercept c on the y-axis is y = mx + c.

#### What is the value of -|- 4?

The absolute value of (−4) , written as |−4| , is equal to 4 because −4 is 4 places away from zero. If you make that number negative, then your answer is 4.

#### Do all triangles equal 180?

The angle sum of a triangle will always be equal to 180°. The angle sum of a quadrilateral is equal to 360°, and a triangle can be created by slicing a quadrilateral in half from corner to corner. Since a triangle is essentially half of a quadrilateral, its angle measures should be half as well. Half of 360° is 180°.
