y: yvalue in point (x, y)
m: slope (rise over run, which means points up/down from one point to the next within the line DIVIDED BY points right/left from one point to the next within the line)
x: xvalue in point (x, y)
b: yintercept (where the line crosses the yaxis, which runs up and down)

Slope intercept formula. lets say the formula was y=2x+1. B is the y intercept (what x is when it's at 0) so in this case b would equal 1 (0,1). m is what you would multiply x by (also called the coefficent)when trying to figure out a coordinate point. For example if x=1 you would find y by multiplying 1 by 2 (y=mx part) and adding 1 (+b or y intercept part). So y=3 so the point would be (1,3). F.S.S. or formula, substitution, solution also goes along with this. You already have the formula, so let's say x=3
y=2x+1 formula
y=2(3)+1 substitution
y= 7

it is the equation for a straight line on a graph.
y= the value on the y axis
x= the value on the x axis
m= the gradient of the line (how steep it is)
b= the point at which the line intersects the y axis.

Er, well, in mathematics, it's the formula for a straight line. m equals the slope of the line and b is equal to the value of the yintercept. I don't know about in computing, however. How are you trying to apply this formula?
What program are you trying to use? Knowing that would help.

The letters M and B are representative of values and could be just about anything. They are a algebriac expression which represents angles. In your formula the X plane is horizontal and the Y plane is vertical. Because you are using the ordered pairs X and Y I assume that you are working with planes. Consider Y=2X+5 The bar on the plane changes the M/B value as it is moved. X and Y are constants and M and B are variables.

m stands for the angle of slope
x is the x coordinate
b is the point for the y coordinate where the x coordinate is 0
y is of couse the y coordinate
such as y = 5x +2, where x = 3. SO when the equaction tell us that y = 5(3) + 2 meaning y = 17
