Answer:

#y = 1x+(-2)# is in slope intercept form with a slope of #1# and a y-intercept of #(-2)#

Explanation:

The slope intercept form is (in general)
#color(white)("XXXX")##y = mx+b#

#x-y= 2# can be converted into this form by adding #y-2# to both sides giving:
#color(white)("XXXX")##x-2 = y#
or
#color(white)("XXXX")##y = x-2#

which can be made into explicit slope-intercept form as
#color(white)("XXXX")##y=1x+(-2)#
