Answer:

The slope is 2 and the y-intercept is 2.

Explanation:

Convert the given equation to slope-intercept form, which is:
#y = mx + b#

The slope will be represented by the letter #m# (the coefficient of #x#) and #b# will represent the y-intercept.

Simplify and solve for #y# as follows:
#y+6 = 2(x + 4)#
#y+6 = 2x + 8#
#y = 2x + 2#

slope (#m#): 2
y-intercept (#b#): 2
