# How do you graph the equation y=-1/5x+2?

Jan 7, 2018

Graph is available for this linear equation

#### Explanation:

Slope-Intercept Form : $\textcolor{red}{y = m x + b}$

where

$\textcolor{red}{m}$ is the Slope and

$\textcolor{red}{b}$ is the y-Intercept

Note that

if $\textcolor{g r e e n}{m > 0}$ we have a Positive Slope

if $\textcolor{g r e e n}{m < 0}$ we have a Negative Slope

Zero Slope refers to a horizontal line

In our Linear Equation $\textcolor{b l u e}{y = - \frac{1}{5} x + 2} ,$

since $\textcolor{red}{m < 0}$ we will have a Negative Slope

Note that $\textcolor{red}{b = 2}$ is our y-Intercept
