    The slope is 3 and the y-intercept is -6

    the standard equation of a line is y=mx + b where m is the slope and b is the y intercept (in other words where x = 0). In this case, the m would equal three. To find the y intercept plug in 0 for x:

    y= 3(0) - 6.

    so

    the y intercept = -6

    This equation is in slope-intercept form of y = mx + b. m will be the value of the slope and b will be the value of the y-intercept.

    So you can immediately "read off" your answer:

    Slope(m) = 3

    y-intercept(b) = -6

    slope is the number next to x, in this case, 3

    to find the y intercept set x equal to zero, you will get -6

    Why in the world should you receive credit for learning something you refuse to learn? Why should anyone continue to assist you in that endeavor?
