Answer:

y = -2x + 17

Explanation:

Put the y on one side by itself.
-2 is the slope and 17 is the y-intercept.

Answer:

-2

Explanation:

Slope / gradient of a line is obtained by making an equation in the form of:

#y = mx + c#

where '#m#' gives the slope/gradient of the line and '#c#' gives y-intercept.

# 2x+y=17#

#y=-2x+17#

Here comparing this with #y = mx+c# gives:

#m# = -2 (slope/gradient) and #c #= 17 (y-intercept)

So slope / gradient of line :

#m = -2#
