# How do you find the slope and y intercept for y = -2x + 3?

Jul 11, 2015

The slope is $- 2$ and the $y$-intercept is at ($0 , 3$).

#### Explanation:

The "slope-intercept" form of a straight line equation is

$y = m x + b$,

where $m$ is the slope and $b$ is the $y$-intercept.

$y = - 2 x + 3$
If we compare the two equations, we see that $m = - 2$ and $b = 3$.
So the slope is $- 2$ and the $y$-intercept is at ($0 , 3$).
