Answer:

#"slope "=3," y-intercept "=-2#

Explanation:

#"the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form"# is.

#•color(white)(x)y=mx+b#

#"where m is the slope and b the y-intercept"#

#y=3x-2" is in this form"#

#"with slope "=3" and y-intercept "=-2#

Answer:

Shown below

Explanation:

if #y = mx + c#

Then #m# is always the slope, and #c # is always the #y - "intercept " #

#y = color(red)(3) x color(blue)( " "-2 )#

Hence in this case the slope is #color(red)(3#

Then the #y - "intercept " # is #color(blue)(-2 #
