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

Feb 26, 2016

The line goes through y at -3 and has a slope of $\frac{2}{3}$.

#### Explanation:

The slope intercept equation of a line is
$y = m x + b$
where $m$ is the slope and $b$ is the y intercept.

For the equation $y = \frac{2}{3} x - 3$
The slope $m = \frac{2}{3}$ and the y intercept $b = - 3$

Begin by identifying the y intercept at -3 or the point (0,-3)

Next use the slope $m = \frac{2}{3}$ or $m = \frac{2 r i s e}{3 r u n}$ to determine the next point of the graph by going up +2 and to the right +3.

Now just draw the line through those two points.
