# How do you write the equation of a line given Slope: 2, y-intercept: -6?

Dec 18, 2016

y = 2x - 6

#### Explanation:

The slope-intercept formula states:

$\textcolor{red}{y = m x + b}$

Where $\textcolor{red}{m}$ is the slope

and

$\textcolor{red}{b}$ is the y-intercept.

Substituting the information provided gives:

$y = 2 x + - 6$

y = 2x - 6
