# What is the slope of the line whose equation is y=-x+2?

Dec 16, 2016

$\text{slope } = - 1$

#### Explanation:

The equation of a line in $\textcolor{b l u e}{\text{slope-intercept form}}$ 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.

$\text{the equation " y=-x+2" is in this form}$

$\Rightarrow \text{slope " =-1" and y-intercept } = 2$
