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

Nov 9, 2015

You will have to rewrite to a $y = m x + b$ form, where $m$=slope and $\left(0 , b\right)$ is the $y$-intercept.

#### Explanation:

Add $y$ to each side, and then add $7$
$\to x = - 7 + y \to x + 7 = y \to y = x + 7 = 1 \cdot x + 7$

Now the slope is $1$ and the $y$-intercept is $7$
The $x$-intercept will be $\left(- 7 , 0\right)$
