How do you graph 1.5=y-3x using the slope and intercept?

see explanation.

Explanation:

Rearrange the given equation into $\textcolor{b l u e}{\text{slope-intercept form}}$

That is $\textcolor{red}{| \overline{\underline{\textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{a}{a}} \textcolor{b l a c k}{y = m x + b} \textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{a}{a}} |}}}$
where m represents the slope and b, the y-intercept.

$1.5 + 3 x = y - \cancel{3 x} \cancel{+ 3 x} \Rightarrow y = 3 x + 1.5$
a slope of 3 $= \frac{3}{1}$ means 3 units vertically for every 1 unit horizontally.
