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

Dec 24, 2015

Slope is 1 ; y- intercept to graph is -2 and x-intercept is 2

#### Explanation:

The equation of Straight line is $y = m x + c$ , where m is the slope of the line.
So slope of the line $y = x - 2$ is thus 1 (co-efficient of x)
when $x = 0 , y = 0 - 2 = - 2$
So the straight line will pass through $\left(0 , - 2\right)$.
Therefore y -intercept of the line to graph is -2
Similarly when $y = 0$ ; x is equal to 2
So the straight line will pass through $\left(2 , 0\right)$.
Therefore x -intercept of the line to graph is 2 (answer)
