Dec 21, 2016

A straight line with slope -3 and y-intercept +2

#### Explanation:

The equation of a straight line with slope $\left(m\right)$ and y-intercept $\left(c\right)$ is:

$y = m x + c$

in ths example:

$y = - 3 x + 2 \to m = - 3$ and $c = + 2$

Hence, the graph of the line is as below:

graph{-3x+2 [-7.9, 7.905, -3.95, 3.95]}
