# How do you find the slope and intercept to graph y=-5x-5?

$S l o p e = G r a \mathrm{di} e n t$

$G r a \mathrm{di} e n t = - 5$
$I n t e r c e p t = - 5$

#### Explanation:

$y = - 5 x - 5$ is in the form of the equation of a straight line

$y = m x + c$

Where

$m$ = gradient of the straight line
$c$ = point at which the line crosses the y-axis
$y$ = y-coordinate on the line
$x$ = x-coordinate on the line

$\therefore$ $m = - 5$ and $c = - 5$
