# How do you graph the equation by plotting the points y = x - 2?

##### 1 Answer

Plot the y-intercept and then use the rise over run method.

#### Explanation:

To graph any equation, you just pick points and connect them. If you are asking how to graph a linear equation such as

The linear equation in question is in a slope-intercept form. The slope

First, we plot our y-intercept which is equal to -2. This means that our y-intercept is at

Second, we know that our slope is equal to 1. This means that from our y-intercept that we graphed, we will plot points by doing the rise over run method. Since our slope
