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

Mar 9, 2016

#### Answer:

y intercept at (0,0) and slope of $- \frac{1}{1}$

#### Explanation:

The equation $y = - x$ can be written in slope intercept form as
$y = - \frac{1}{1} x + 0$ making the y intercept at $\left(0 , 0\right)$ and the slope $- \frac{1}{1}$

Begin by graphing the y intercept at the origin (0,0) and then use the slope down 1 for -1 and over 1 to map the remaining points.
