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