Answer:

#"slope "=-1," y-intercept "=6#

Explanation:

#"the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form"# is.

#•color(white)(x)y=mx+b#

#"where m is the slope and b the y-intercept"#

#"rearrange "y+x=6" into this form"#

#"subtract " x" from both sides"#

#y=-x+6larrcolor(red)"in slope-intercept form"#

#"with slope "=-1" and y-intercept "=6#
