# How do you find the slope and y-intercept for the line 2x+y-2=0?

Sep 27, 2015

Gradient= $- 2$
$y$-intercept= $2$

#### Explanation:

Rearrange the equation to make $y$ your subject.

$y = - 2 x + 2$

From the equation, you already know that $- 2$ is $m$ (from the equation $y = m x + c$, 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 $y = m x + c$ where $c$ is your $y$-intercept.
