# How do you find the slope and intercept of  y=-6x- 7?

Nov 28, 2015

Slope $= - 6$
Y-intercept $= - 7$
X intercept $- \frac{7}{6}$

#### Explanation:

The given equation is in the slope intercept form.

In such an equation the constant term is the y-intercept

The co-efficient of $x$ is slope.

Given -

$y = - 6 x - 7$

Slope $= - 6$
Y-intercept $= - 7$

x- intercept

Put $y = 0$

Then

$- 6 x - 7 = 0$

$- 6 x = 7$

$x = - \frac{7}{6}$
