Answer:

slope = -2 and y-intercept is +1.
x-intercept is #1/2#

Explanation:

You have them immediately because the equation is in standard form # y =mx+ c# where m is the slope and c is the y-intercept!

Could not be simpler..., just recognise what it is and voila!

YOu can also fine the x-intecept by making y = 0.

#0 = -2x + 1 rArr 2x = 1 rArr x = 1/2#
