# How do you graph the equation y=-1.5x+2?

Jun 9, 2017

See below

#### Explanation:

The $+ 2$ tells us that the y-intercept is $2$.
When you multiply any number by $0$, you still get $0$.
Therefore, the point $\left\{0 , 2\right\}$ is on this line.
Next, let's choose a value for $x$ that is simple. I will choose $3$.
If $x = 3$, then
$- 1.5 x$ becomes $- 4.5$ and so
$- 4.5 + 2 = - 2.5$
$\therefore$ the point $\left\{3 , - 2.5\right\}$ is on this line.
