# How do you graph y=-2/3x-2 using rise over run?

graph{y=-2/3x-2 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

#### Explanation:

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

You put a point on $- 2$ on the $y$-axis. Then you go up $2$ and to the left $3$ because the left means negative. $\left(\frac{+ 2}{- 3}\right)$

Or you can go down $2$ (negative) and to the right $3$ (positive).
$\left(\frac{- 2}{+ 3}\right)$

You can't go left and down $\left(\frac{-}{-}\right)$or up and right $\left(\frac{+}{+}\right)$ because the that will give a positive and the slope is negative.
