# How do you find the slope and intercept to graph #y-2=-1/2(x+3)#?

##### 1 Answer

The slope is

#### Explanation:

This equation is in point-slope form which is:

m is the slope and

Since there's a

To find the y-intercept, you'll have to simplify the equation.

Start with distributing the

Given:

1) Distribute :

2) Add 2 to both sides:

This is the standard form of the equation. From the equation we can see

I'm not sure if you wanted to find what the x-intercept is as well but I'll tell you how to do that too.

x-intercepts always have a 0 in the y coordinate so make the equation equal to 0/plug in 0 for y.
