Answer:

The slope is #color(blue)(-3)#.

Explanation:

Rewrite the equation in slope-intercept form, #y=mx+b#, where #m# is the slope and #b# is the y-intercept.

#y=-3x+6#

The slope is #-3#, which is understood to be #-3/1#.

You can graph the line using the slope. Start at the y-intercept, #6#, and move down #3# spaces and right #1# space. Mark that point. Then go down #3# space and right #1# space again. Mark that point. Now draw a straight line through the two points.
