# How do you find slope, x intercept, and y intercept for x=y+2?

Apr 9, 2015

If you rearrange this equation into the form
$y = m x + b$
$m$ will be the slope and
$b$ will be the y-intercept

Set $y = 0$ in the original equation to get the x-intercept
(in this case the x-intercept will be $2$)

$x = y + 2$
is equivalent to
$y = \left(1\right) \left(x - 2\right)$

The slope is $m = 1$
and the y-intercept will be $\left(- 2\right)$
