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

Mar 27, 2016

Slope = -3
${x}_{\text{intercept}} = 0$
${y}_{\text{intercept}} = 0$

#### Explanation:

Consider the standard form of $y = m x + c$

This is the equation of a straight line that passes through the origin.

In your case $c = 0$ so " "y_("intercept")=c=0

${x}_{\text{intercept}}$ occurs at $y = 0$

So as $0 = m x$ it means that as $m \ne 0 \text{ then } x = 0$

#x_("intercept") =0
