# How do you graph the line y=-x+6?

Apr 18, 2017

See below

#### Explanation:

This is already in the form $y = m x + b$ where $m$ is slope and $b$ is the y-intercept.

Our $m = - 1$ and our $b = 6$. That means that we start at $\left(0 , 6\right)$ and every time we go up $1$ x value, we go down $1$ y value. The opposite happens if we go down $1$ x value.
