# How do you graph y = 3/5 x - 2?

Oct 29, 2017

$y$ is a straight line with slope $\frac{3}{5}$ and $y -$intercept $- 2$

#### Explanation:

$y = \frac{3}{5} x - 2$

The equation of a straight line with slope $\left(m\right)$ and $y -$intercept $\left(c\right)$ is:

$y = m x + c$

So, in this example, $m = \frac{3}{5} \mathmr{and} c = - 2$

The graph of $y$ is shown below.
