# What is the slope and intercept of y= -2x+6?

Apr 4, 2016

#### Answer:

slope = -2 , y-intercept = 6

#### Explanation:

The equation of a line in the form y = mx + c , where m represents the gradient (slope ) and c , the y-intercept , is useful in that the slope and y-intercept can be extracted 'easily'

y = - 2x + 6 is in this form

hence slope = - 2 and y-intercept = 6
