# How do you graph y = (-2/3)x + 4?

graph{(-2/3x)+4 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

#### Explanation:

The equation is in the form

$y = m x + b$

so it's a linear equation, which creates a straight line on a graph.

The $m$ value is the slope and the $b$ value is the $y$-intercept.

The slope is $- \frac{2}{3}$ because it goes down by $\frac{2}{3}$ on the y-axis for every increment of $1$ in the x-axis.

The $y$-intercept is $\left(0 , 5\right)$ because that's the point where the line touches the $y$-axis.
