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

Slope: $2$
$y$-intercept: $- 6$
From the equation itself, you already know that the coefficient of $x$ is always the slope, so the slope is $2$.
From the equation the number behind $x$ is always the $y$-intercept, so the number is $- 6$.
