### Subject: Algebra

Change the formula y-3 = 5(X+1) to slope-intercept form.

Slope intercept form is y = mx + b. To do this, first, distribute the 5 to the (x+1), giving 5x+5. Now we have y-3=5x+5. Given that slope intercept form isolates the y, we must now isolate the y by removing the -3. To do this, use the opposite operation of subtraction: addition. Add 3 to both sides, producing y=5x+8. y=5x+8 gives slope-intercept form, with 5=m and 8=b.
