# How do you find the slope and intercept to graph y=-3x-6?

May 17, 2018

slope$= - 3$

$y$-intercept$= - 6$

$x$-intercept$= - 2$

#### Explanation:

This equation is in slope-intercept form, where the coefficient of $x$ is the slope and the constant is the $y$-intercept.

Therefore,

slope$= - 3$

$y$-intercept$= - 6$

To find $x$-intercept, substitute $y = 0$

$- 3 x - 6 = 0$

$3 x = - 6$

$x = - 2$

Hence,

$x$-intercept$= - 2$
