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 :)

  2. y = -6x

    Slope m = -6
    There is no y-intercept.

    Pick points to graph.
    y = -6x
    x = 0, y = 0
    x = 1, y = -6
    x = -1, y = 6
    x = 2, y = -12
    x = -2, y = 12

    If you graph this, you will see a line through the origin.

    This line does not intersect the y-axis.
    Therefore, there is no y-intercept.

    If you graph, I think you will see why there is no y-intercept.
