#### Explanation:

#"the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form"# is.

#•color(white)(x)y=mx+b#

#"where m is the slope and b the y-intercept"#

#"rearrange "-2x+y=6" into this form"#

#"add "2x" to both sides"#

#y=2x+6larrcolor(blue)"in slope-intercept form"#

#"with slope "=2" and y-intercept "=6#
