# How do you find the slope and intercept to graph y = 2x - 3?

Nov 11, 2015

Slope is $2$, y-intercept is $- 3$, x-intercept is $\frac{3}{2}$.

#### Explanation:

Linear equations of form $y = m x + c$ implies that the slope is $m$ and the Y-intercept is $c$.

So here the slope is $2$ and the y-intercept is $- 3$.

The x-intercept may be found by letting $y = 0$ and solving for x.
But $2 x - 3 = 0 \iff x = \frac{3}{2}$.

The graph verifies the results calculated.
