# How do you graph y=-2x+10?

The basis for this equation is $y = m x + b$, where $m$ is the slope and $b$ is the $y$-intercept.
So, $y = - 2 x + 10$ tells us that the slope is $- \frac{2}{1}$ or down $2$ units, over $1$ unit, and that the $y$-intercept is $10$.
So, we start at $\left(0 , 10\right)$. If we go down $2$ and over $1$, we subtract $2$ from $10$ and add $1$ to $0$
Our new coordinate pair is $\left(1 , 8\right)$. If we keep going we can make a line, but you should have enough information to make graph
