$\text{slope } = 1$

$\text{intercept } = - 2$

#### Explanation:

rearrange to the form $y = m x + c$

$x - y = 2$

$\implies y = x - 2$

$m =$gradient/slope

$\therefore \text{slope } = 1$

$c = \text{intercept}$

$\text{intercept } = - 2$

the slope is $1$ and the intercepts are $y = - 2$ and $x = 2$

#### Explanation:

Writing your equation in the form
$y = x - 2$
we get the slope of $1$
and
P_1(0;-2)
and
P_2(2;0)
