# How do you find the slope and y-intercept for the line y = -2x + 5?

Sep 22, 2015

I found:
$m = - 2$ Slope;
$c = 5$ y-Intercept.

#### Explanation:

We are lucky beacause the equation is in Slope-Intercept form:
$y = m x + c$
where:
$m =$ slope;
$c =$ y-intercept.
$m = - 2 =$Slope;
$c = 5 =$y-Intercept.
