# How do you find the slope and intercept for y= -9x?

May 4, 2017

Slope is $- 9$, y-intercept is $0$ and x-intercept is $0$.

#### Explanation:

$y = - 9 x \mathmr{and} y = - 9 x + 0$ ,

Comparing with general straight line equation $y = m x + c$
where $m$ is slope and $c$ is y-intercept, we get here slope as

$m = - 9$ and y-intercept as $c = 0$ So y-intercept is at $0 , 0$

To find x-intercept putting $y = 0$ in the equation we find $x = 0$ So x-intercept is also at $0 , 0$ graph{-9x [-40, 40, -20, 20]} [Ans]
