# How do you find the slope and intercept to graph 2x+y=5?

Nov 5, 2015

Slope = -2 and Y intercept = 5

#### Explanation:

The slope intercept form is given by the equation $y = m x + b$
Where m is the Slope and b is the Y intercept

$2 x + y = 5$ can be written as
$y = - 2 x + 5$

Hence slope = -2 and Y intercept = 5
