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