10-110.

Graph the rule $y =-3x + 2$.

Make a table of $x$ and $y$-values and graph the points.

1. What is the slope?

Notice that the run goes in the negative $x$ direction.
$\text{Slope} = \frac{\text{rise}}{\text{run}}$

2. What is the $y$-intercept?

The $y$-intercept is the point at which the graphed line intersects the $y$-axis.

$y = 2$
