For the equation y = -6x, what is the slope and y intercept? The formula is y = mx + B. I know that m = the slope and B = the y intercept. So in the equation y = -6x, what is the slope and y intercept? Is -6 the y intercept or the slope? Because if it's the slope, How am I suppose to figure out what the y intercept is? I have to make a graph too... Please help! I'm so confused !
Preferably someone who's good at Math and know's what there doing. Thank you :)
What would happen if we wrote your equation of
y = -6x as
y = -6x + 0 and compare it to y = mx+ b ?
