How do you find the slope and y intercept for #y - 6 = -2x#?
slope = -2 and y-intercept = 6
y = mx + c , is the equation of a straight line , where m
represents the gradient (slope ) and c , the y-intercept.
The equation y - 6 = - 2x , is close to this form.
Rearrange to obtain : y = -2x + 6
and by comparison with y = mx + c
m = - 2 and y-intercept = 6
