Answer:

#"slope "=-3," y-intercept "=2#

Explanation:

#"the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form"# is.

#•color(white)(x)y=mx+b#

#"where m is the slope and b the y-intercept"#

#y=-3x+2" is in this form"#

#"with slope "=-3" and y-intercept "=2#

Answer:

Find value pairs

Explanation:

If x is zero, y is #y=2#

If x is 1, y is #y=-1#

If x is 2, y is #y=-4#

Therefore the slope is -3.

y intercept is 2 (when x is zero y is 2)

When y is 0, you will get #x=2/3#
