# What is the slope and intercept for 2x-y=1 and how would you graph it?

Oct 10, 2015

$m = 2$
${y}_{x = 0} = - 1$

#### Explanation:

First solve for $y$ and get $y = - \left(1 - 2 x\right)$

Now we want to know $m$ which can be found as the coefficient of $x$. we know this because $y = m x + C$. Here $m$=2

Now for ${f}_{0}$ or $C$
This is $- 1$ in this equation
