# What is the equation of the line that has a y intercept of 6 and slope of -2?

May 1, 2018

$y = - 2 x + 6$

#### Explanation:

$\text{the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form}$ is.

•color(white)(x)y=mx+b

$\text{where m is the slope and b the y-intercept}$

$\text{here "m=-2" and } b = 6$

$\Rightarrow y = - 2 x + 6 \leftarrow \textcolor{red}{\text{is the equation}}$

$y = - 2 x + 6$ is the equation.

#### Explanation:

$y = m x + c$ is the Slope-Intercept Form.
Where m = slope and c is the y-intercept.

So you should just substitute m = -2 and c = 6 to get the equation of the line.
