# How do you graph y-2=-1/2(x+3)?

Apr 10, 2018

Below

#### Explanation:

$y - 2 = - \frac{1}{2} \left(x + 3\right)$

Looking at the equation,

When $y = 0$,
$x = 1$ ie $\left(1 , 0\right)$

When $x = 0$
$y = \frac{1}{2}$ ie $\left(0 , \frac{1}{2}\right)$

Then just plot those two points and join them together.
