# How do you find the slope and intercept of y=-x+1?

Jan 25, 2016

slope = - 1 , y-intercept = 1

#### Explanation:

The equation of a straight line in the form y = mx + c

has m (slope ) and c, the y-intercept.

The equation y = - x + 1 is in this form and by comparison

slope = - 1 and y-intercept = +1
