The slope and y-intercept form can be found by writing the equation as a form where y is expressed in terms of x and is the dependent term and x is the independent term.
The format is the slope-intercept form, y = mx + c, where m is the slope and c is the y-intercept.
12x - 2y = 16
=> 2y = 12x - 16
=> y = 6x - 8
This gives the slope as 6 and the y-intercept as -8.
