$\text{slope "=-3," y-intercept } = 2$

#### Explanation:

$\text{the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form}$ is.

•color(white)(x)y=mx+b

$\text{where m is the slope and b the y-intercept}$

$y = - 3 x + 2 \text{ is in this form}$

$\text{with slope "=-3" and y-intercept } = 2$

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 $x = \frac{2}{3}$
