# How do you calculate the slope, x intercept, and y intercept of the following equation: -2x +y =2?

Jul 13, 2015

For slope and $y$-intercept you can rewrite:

#### Explanation:

Add $2 x$ to both sides:
$\to y = 2 x + 2$
Then the first $2$ is the slope and $\left(0 , 2\right)$ is the $y$-intercept (where $x = 0$)
For the $x$-intercept you have to set $y = 0$:
$- 2 x + 0 = 2 \to x = - 1 \to \left(- 1 , 0\right)$
