# How do you find the slope and intercept of y=2x-1?

Dec 5, 2015

The slope is the coefficient on the x-variable ...

#### Explanation:

In this problem, the coefficient is 2, so the slope $= 2$

The y-intercept happens when $x = 0$, so for this problem:

$y \left(0\right) = - 1$

hope that helped
