# How do you find the slope and y intercept for 2x-y= 1?

Jun 15, 2015

Put the $y$'s to one side, and the rest to the other.

#### Explanation:

Add $y$ to both sides:
$\to 2 x = y + 1$
Now subtract $1$ from both sides:
$\to 2 x - 1 = y \to y = 2 x - 1$
In this the $2$ that goes with the $x$ is the slope,
and $- 1$ is the $y$-intercept at $\left(0 , - 1\right)$
