HI,
The slope-intercept form of an equation is:
y = mx + b, where m is the slope, and b is the y-intercept.
-2x - y = 6
So, changing it around; y = -2x - 6.
The slope of the line, with your equation is -2.
If two lines are parallel, they have the same slope.
So, the slope of another line, parallel to yours, is -2.
