# How do you graph the line y= -5x+3?

May 16, 2018

#### Answer:

graph{-5x+3 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

#### Explanation:

Using the gradient intercept formula $y = m x + b$,
the gradient is $- 5$, meaning that for each unit it goes across, it goes down by $5$ units. Since we have a $+ 3$, we can raise the graph up from $\left(0 , 0\right)$ to $\left(0 , 3\right)$
