Slope is 2, intercept is -3

#### Explanation:

An easy way to know slope and in y-intercept is by seeing the **y=mx+c** equation

We can say that *m* is the *gradient* or *slope* and *c* is the intercept of y

If we see this in the graph below, we can say that our line with equation y=2x-3 meets with y axis on -3 and each time we move 1 box horizontally the line passes through 2 boxes vertically graph{y=2x-4 [-20, 20, -10, 10]}

I hope this helps :))
