# What is the slope and y-intercept of the line y+3x=6 ?

Jul 13, 2015

The slope is $- 3$ and the y-intercept is $6$.

#### Explanation:

$y + 3 x = 6$

Rearrange the equation to the slope-intercept form, $y = m x + b$, where $m$ is the slope and $b$ is the y-intercept.

Subtract $3 x$ from both sides.

$y = - 3 x + 6$

The slope is $- 3$ and the y-intercept is $6$.
