Find the value of the slope.
Slope is equal to the change in y over the change in x, or rise over run.
m=change in ychange in x
The change in x is equal to the difference in x-coordinates (also called run), and the change in y is equal to the difference in y-coordinates (also called rise).
Substitute in the values of x and y into the equation to find the slope.
Cancel the common factor of 6-(-2).
Cancel the common factor.
Divide 1 by 1.
Find the value of the y-intercept.
Substitute the value of m into the slope-intercept form of the equation, y=mx+b.
Substitute the value of x into the slope-intercept form of the equation, y=mx+b.
Substitute the value of y into the slope-intercept form of the equation, y=mx+b.
Rewrite the equation as (1)⋅(-2)+b=-2.
Multiply -2 by 1.
Move all terms not containing b to the right side of the equation.
Add 2 to both sides of the equation.
Add -2 and 2.
The values of the slope and y-intercept are m=1 and b=0.
