# How do you write the equation of the line in slope-intercept form with a slope of -6 and a y-intercept of 9?

May 11, 2016

y = -6x + 9

#### Explanation:

The equation of a line in slope-intercept form is $\textcolor{red}{| \overline{\underline{\textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{a}{a}} \textcolor{b l a c k}{y = m x + b} \textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{a}{a}} |}}}$
where m represents the gradient (slope) and b, the y-intercept

Here m = -6 and b = 9

Substituting into the equation gives : y = -6x + 9
