How do you graph using slope and intercept of x+2y=6?

May 4, 2018

I would put the equation into slope-intercept form.

Explanation:

You can do this by getting $y$ by itself. First, subtract $x$. Then you would divide both sides by $2$. Your final answer should be this:

$y = - \frac{1}{2} x + 3$

Now you can see that the slope is $- \frac{1}{2}$ and the $y$-intercept is $\left(0 , 3\right)$, so your graph would look like this:

graph{y=(-1/2)x+3 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
