# Use the equation 12x-2y=16 identify the slope of the equation and the y-intercept.

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.**

**Therefore, the slope of the equation and the y intercept are: m = 6 and n = -8.**
