#### Answer:

slope = - 4 , y-intercept = - 6

#### Explanation:

One form of the equation of a straight line is y = mx + c where m

represents the gradient (slope ) of the line and c the y-intercept.

rearranging the equation 4x + y = - 6 gives : y = - 4x - 6

and by comparing the 2 equations we get m = - 4 and

y-intercept = - 6
