# How do you write  x - y = -2 into slope intercept form?

Aug 9, 2015

$y = x + 2$

#### Explanation:

slope intercept form is $y = m x + b$
that means you should try to get $y$ alone to one side

from $x - y = - 2$

you should add $y$ to both sides
and get $x = y - 2$

then add 2 to both sides
to get you answer of $y = x + 2$
