By changing the equation to slope intercept form, which would be

#### Explanation:

The general way to graph a line like this is to get it into slope intercept form which is

So generally, just solve for y.

You may put it into decimals if you wish but it's not really necessary.

From this equation we can see that the slope is

The graph ends up looking like:

graph{y=-2/7x-40/7 [-29.01, 28.72, -11.67, 17.18]}
