# How do you find the slope and intercept of y - 6 = -2x ?

Jul 18, 2016

slope $m = - 2$
y-intercept $= 6$

#### Explanation:

Given -

$y - 6 = - 2 x$

Solve it for $y$

$y = 6 - 2 x$

The equation is in the slope - intercept form $y = m x + c$

Its slope is the co-efficient of $x$

Its y-intercept is constant term

y-intercept $= 6$
