# How do you find the slope and y intercept for 3y = -6x + 9?

Apr 11, 2018

Slope = -2

y-intercept = 3

#### Explanation:

Slope-intercept form is $y = m x + b$ (m = slope and b = y-intercept)

We have to rearrange $3 y = - 6 x + 9$ into slope-intercept form:

$3 y = - 6 x + 9$ (Divide both sides by 3)

$y = - 2 x + 3$

Slope = -2 (which is m)
y-intercept = 3 (which is b)
