# How do you find the slope and y intercept for: 2x + y = -6 ?

May 1, 2018

so the gradient is -2 and the $y$ intercept is -6
rearrange as the general equation for a straight line $y = m x + c$ where $m$ is the gradient and $c$ is the $y$ intercept
$y = - 2 x - 6$
so the gradient is -2 and the $y$ intercept is -6
