y = mx+c is the slope intercept form.

m is the slope

c is the intercept.

For example, if (0,1) (1,3) are two points

slope =(3-1)/(1-0) =2/1 =2

The line is:  (y-1) =2(x-0) or

y -1 =2x

y =2x+1

2 is the slope 

1 is the intercept

General form of slope for the line joining (x1,y1), (x2,y2) is (y2-y1)/(x2-x1)

general line: (y-y1)= (x-x1) * (y2-y1)/(x2-x1)
