m=-6 y-intercept:2 x-intercept:$\frac{1}{3}$
To find the slope of an equation you need to bring the equation to this form: y=my+b. $6x+y-2=0<=>y=-6x-2$ The value that x is multiplied by is the slope. To calculate the intercepts of equations you need to set the other variable to 0 and calculate the value of the variable from the intercept: to calculate the y-intercept you set x=0 and the ther way around. $x=0:y-2=0<=>y=2$ $y=0:6x-2=0<=>x=\frac{1}{3}$
