#### Answer

We find that the slope is $-2$ and the y-intercept is $6$.

#### Work Step by Step

This equation is written in standard form. To easily find the slope and y-intercept of the equation, we want to rewrite the equation in slope-intercept form.
The slope-intercept form is:
$$y = mx + b$$
where $m$ is the slope and $b$ is the y-intercept.
We first subtract $2x$ from each side to isolate $y$:
$$y = -2x + 6$$
Looking at this equation, we see that $m$, the slope, is $-2$ and $b$, the y-intercept, is $6$.
