# How do you find the slope and intercept of -2x + y = 6?

May 25, 2018

we get $x = 0 , y = 6$ and $x = - 3 , y = 0$ and the slope is given by $m = 2$

#### Explanation:

Writing your equation in the form
$y = 2 x + 6$ then you will get all the asked values.

$\text{slope "=2," y-intercept } = 6$

#### Explanation:

$\text{the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form}$ is.

•color(white)(x)y=mx+b

$\text{where m is the slope and b the y-intercept}$

$\text{rearrange "-2x+y=6" into this form}$

$\text{add "2x" to both sides}$

$y = 2 x + 6 \leftarrow \textcolor{b l u e}{\text{in slope-intercept form}}$

$\text{with slope "=2" and y-intercept } = 6$
