The equation y = 6x – 50 describes the amount of money a class of students might earn from candy bar sales. What are the slope and y-intercept of this line?

In the general linear equation y = mx + b, m is the slope and b is the y-intercept. The y intercept is the value of y where the line intercepts the y-axis. Compare y = mx + b with your equation and decide what m and b are.
