How do you graph using slope and intercept of 2x-3y=7?

See below

Explanation:

Remember that slope intercept form is $y = m x + b$ where m is slope and b is the y intercept

So we must put the function in slope intercept form as such:

$2 x - 3 y = 7$

$- 3 y = - 2 x + 7$

$y = \frac{2}{3} x - \frac{7}{3}$

To graph the equation, we place a point on the graph where x = 0 (y intercept) at the value $y = - \frac{7}{3}$, then we draw a line with a slope of $\frac{2}{3}$ that runs through that line.
graph{y = (2/3x) - (7/3) [-3.85, 6.15, -3.68, 1.32]}
