# What is the slope and y-intercept of the line y=-3x+5?

Jun 27, 2017

$\text{slope "=-3" and y-intercept } = 5$

#### Explanation:

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

$\textcolor{red}{\overline{\underline{| \textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{2}{2}} \textcolor{b l a c k}{y = m x + b} \textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{2}{2}} |}}}$
where m represents the slope and b the y-intercept.

$y = - 3 x + 5 \text{ is in this form}$

$\Rightarrow \text{slope "=-3" and y-intercept } = 5$
