Answer:

See a solution process below:

Explanation:

This function is in slope-intercept form. The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is: #y = color(red)(m)x + color(blue)(b)#

Where #color(red)(m)# is the slope and #color(blue)(b)# is the y-intercept value.

#f(x) = color(red)(-6)x - color(blue)(2)#

Therefore:

  • The slope is: #color(red)(m = -6)#

  • The #y#-intercept is: #color(blue)(b = -2)# or #(0, color(blue)(-2))#
