# How do you find the slope and intercept of y = -7x-9?

Jul 13, 2018

Slope -7 intercept (0,-9)

#### Explanation:

With the general equation $y = m x + c$ $m$ is the slope and $c$ is the y intercept

$y = - 7 x - 9 \implies m = - 7 \implies c = - 9$

$\text{slope "=-7," y-intercept } = - 9$

#### Explanation:

$\text{the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form}$ is.

•color(white)(x)y=mx+b

$\text{where m is the slope and b the y-intercept}$

$y = - 7 x - 9 \text{ is in this form}$

$\text{with slope "=-7" and y-intercept } = - 9$
