# How do you graph the line through point (1,2) and slope m=-3?

Plot $\left(1 , 2\right)$ on a graph then use the slope to find other points, then connect the dots with a ruler or other straightedge.
We can first plot the point $\left(1 , 2\right)$ on a graph then use the definition of slope or "rise over run" to draw more points. Since the $m = - 3$, we know that each time we move right $1$ unit, we need to move down $3$ units. So, our graph should look like this. graph{y-2=-3(x-1) [-10.17, 9.83, -2.84, 7.16]}
