How do you graph the line with slope -1/2 passing through point (-3,-5)?
So the y value becomes less as you read left to right. The slope is down.
Let the given point be
Using the standardised equation format
We have by substituting the values for
So the equation of the line that passes through the point (-3,-5) is:
The y-intercept is the value of the constant
Mark your points on the x and y axis and draw a straight line through them. Also show the given point.
