slope: -18x

y intercept: 12

#### Explanation:

We must put your equation into y=mx+b form. To do this, we must use algebra!

Keep the y on the left side, and move everything else over. Don't forget to change their operation when moving an expression to its opposite side (positive to negative, or negative to positive).

Next, to get y by itself, we must divide everything by

There's your final equation in y=mx+b form! From here, you can easily spot the slope and y intercept.
