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

$y = - 2 x + 5$
$- 2$ is the slope, and $5$ is the y intercept.
Start by placing a point at $\left(0 , 5\right)$, which is the y intercept, then from there move down 2 right 1, down 2 right 1, etc to plot more points. You can also move up 2 left 1. Connect the points, and you have the line.
