# How do you find the slope and intercept of y = -2x + 3?

Jun 20, 2016

The slope is $m = - 2$ or $m = - \frac{2}{1}$

The y-intercept is $b = + 3$

#### Explanation:

This equation is in the slope-intercept form.

$y = m x + b$

Where
$m = s l o p e$
and
$b = y$ intercept

Therefore for the equation

$y = - 2 x + 3$

The slope is $m = - 2$ or $m = - \frac{2}{1}$

The y-intercept is $b = + 3$
