Find slope and y-intercept of following equation

y=-3 x -2 knowing the slope of intercept

5 formula is y=mx+b

slope is m or -3 y=-3 or m (0) -2 m=slope

5 5 y-intercept = let x=o

solve for y

y=0-2

y=-2

You can tell by inspecting the equation in the y = mx + b form that the slope is m = -3 and the y intercept is -2 in this case. So, your answers are correct. I don't understand you thought process, however, nor where the 5's come from
