 Solved by pluggable solver: DESCRIBE a linear EQUATION: slope, intercepts, etc Equation describes a sloping line. For any equation ax+by+c = 0, slope is .X intercept is found by setting y to 0: ax+by=c becomes ax=c. that means that x = c/a. 6/1 = 6.Y intercept is found by setting x to 0: the equation becomes by=c, and therefore y = c/b. Y intercept is 6/-3 = -2.Slope is -1/-3 = 0.333333333333333. Equation in slope-intercept form: y=0.333333333333333*x+-2.
