color(green)((x_1 = 2, y_1 = 0), " slope " m = -1

#### Explanation:

Point - Slope Form $\left(y - {y}_{1}\right) = m \cdot \left(x - {x}_{1}\right)$

Given equation is $y = - \left(x - 2\right)$

Can be rewritten as $\left(y - 0\right) = - 1 \cdot \left(x - 2\right)$

Hence color(green)((x_1 = 2, y_1 = 0, m = -1
