Since the equation is written in the form y = mx + c, the slope is simply m. In this case, m = 2.

The slope would be -2 (moving 2 units down and one across). When you have a linear equation, the slope is always the variable's coefficient.

That is called slope - intercept form

y = -x + 8

The equation y = mx + b is the equation for a line in slope intercept form, with m being the slope, and b being the y-axis intercept.
