# How do you graph y=6-1.25x?

Nov 9, 2014

This is in slope intercept form, $y = m x + b$, where $m$ is the slope and $b$ is the $y$ -intercept .

The slope is $- 1.25$.

The $y$-intercept is $6$.

Convert the slope to an improper fraction.

$- 1.25 = - 1 \frac{25}{100} = - \frac{125}{100} = - \frac{5}{4} = \frac{r i s e}{r u n} = s l o p e$

The first point should be placed on (0,6).

From that point ...
