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

It equals the slope of the line y = -x. That's a pretty darn strong hint right there is what that is.

That is called slope - intercept form

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.
