gradient =-1

Intercepts are (6,0) and (0,6)

#### Explanation:

the slope is basically the gradient ie m=-1

the x-intercept is found by subbing y=0 so x=6 (6,0)

the y-intercept is found by subbing x=0 so y=6 (0,6)

The slope is

The y-intercept is

The x-intercept is

#### Explanation:

Given:

where:

Since the y-intercept is the value of

The x-intercept is the value of

The x-intercept is

The point for the x-intercept is

graph{y=6-x [-11.16, 11.34, -3.375, 7.875]}
