Answer:

slope = 6

Explanation:

The equation of a line in #color(blue)"slope-intercept form"# is

#color(red)(|bar(ul(color(white)(a/a)color(black)(y=mx+b)color(white)(a/a)|)))#
where m represents the slope and b, the y-intercept.

The advantage to having the equation in this form is that m and b can be extracted 'easily'.

The equation y = 6x - 2 is in this form and by inspection

slope = 6
