Question 202410
<font face="Garamond" size="+2">

Your first question deals with an equation that is already in slope-intercept form, namely *[tex \Large y\ =\ mx\ +\ b].  The slope is the coefficient on *[tex \Large x]

For your second problem, you need to solve for *[tex \Large y].  That is to say you need to put it into the slope intercept form *[tex \Large y\ =\ mx\ +\ b].  Add *[tex \Large -2x] to both sides, then multiply both sides by the reciprocal of the coefficient on *[tex \Large y].  The resulting constant term on the right-hand side will be your *[tex \Large y]-intercept.
