Answer:

The slope-intercept equation is #y=6x+6#

Explanation:

If the y-intercept #= 6# the point is #(0,6)#
If the x-intercept #=-1# the point is #(-1,0)

The slope-intercept form of the equation of the line is #y=mx+b#
where #m=# slope and #b=# the y intercept

#m=(y_2-y_1)/(x_2-x_1)#

#x_1=0#
#y_1=6#
#x_2=-1#
#y_2=0#

#m = (0-6)/(-1-0)#

#m = (-6)/(-1)#

#m=6#
#b=6#

#y=6x+6#
