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

Aug 7, 2016

Slope is $= 1$
$x$-intercept is $x = - 2$
$y$-intercept is $y = 2$

#### Explanation:

$y = m x + c$ where $m$ is the slope
In the equation $y = x + 2$ slope is $= 1$
$x$-intercept is when $y = 0$
So
$0 = x + 2$
or
$x = - 2$
Similarly
$y$-intercept is when $x = 0$
or
$y = 0 + 2$
or
$y = 2$
