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

Mar 2, 2016

slope = 1
y-intercept = - 6

#### Explanation:

One form of the equation of a line is$\textcolor{b l u e}{\text{ y = mx + c }}$

where m represents the gradient (slope) and c , the y-intercept.

rearrange y - x = -6 into this form and read off m and c.

hence y = x - 6 and slope = 1 , y-intercept = - 6
