Hi Conny;
y= -x+2
The equation is in the format of...
y=mx+b
m is the slope.
b is the y-intercept, the value of y when x=0.
The slope is -1, the line will rise 1 unit while moving to the left 1 unit, and it will decline 1 unit while moving to the right 1 unit.
The y intercept is 2, corresponding to the point of (0,2).
