# How do you find the slope and y intercept for y=27-9x?

Jun 17, 2018

$\text{slope} = - 9$

$\text{intercept} = 27$

#### Explanation:

$y = 27 - 9 x$

Recall the equation of a line;

$y = m x + c$

Where;

$m = \text{slope}$

$c = \text{intercept}$

$y = 27 - 9 x$

Making it standard by rearranging the equation..

$y = - 9 x + 27$

Comparing both equations;

$m = - 9$

$c = 27$
