Answer:

Gradient= #-2#
#y#-intercept= #2#

Explanation:

Rearrange the equation to make #y# your subject.

#y=-2x+2#

From the equation, you already know that #-2# is #m# (from the equation #y=mx+c#, whereby #m# is your gradient) which means #-2# is your gradient.

From the equation you would also know that #2# is your #y#-intercept. Also from the equation #y=mx+c# where #c# is your #y#-intercept.
