Slope = -2
y-Intercept = 3


Using the slope intercept form (y = mx+b) we can solve the equation. -2 is the coefficient of x, making it m. m is the slope in the slope intercept form. To find the intercept, you look at the equation and find what would match b, which in this case is 3. graph{-2x+3 [-10, 10, -5, 5]} Here is the graphed equation which you can use to double check the answer. The slope goesat a rate of -2 and starts at +3 on the y-axis
