Find the slope and y intercept of the equation y=(2-a)x+a
I know how to find slope and y intercept; I just don't know how to solve this.

  • math -

    in an equation
    y=mx+b
    where m=slope, and b=intercept.

    Compare with the given equation
    y=(2-a)x + a
    we conclude that
    m=2-a, b=a

    Can you figure what the slope and intercept are?
