# How do you find the slope and intercept of f(x) = -7x -2?

Jul 23, 2016

$m = - 7 \mathmr{and} c = - 2$

#### Explanation:

$f \left(x\right) = y$, so this is the equation of a straight line in standard form $y = m x + c$

IN this form, $m$ represents the slope and $c$ gives the y-intercept.

In $f \left(x\right) = - 7 x - 2 , \text{ } m = - 7 \mathmr{and} c = - 2$
