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

May 23, 2018

slope is 3
y-intercept is -6

#### Explanation:

From the slope-intercept form:
$y = m x + b$
where $m$ is the slope and $+ b$ is the y-intercept

$y = 3 x - 6$
is already written in the slope-intercept form so
the slope is 3
y-intercept is -6
