# How do you graph #y - 7 = -3x# by plotting points?

##### 1 Answer

Refer to the explanation below.

#### Explanation:

First begin by rearranging the equation to form a linear function.

Now, looking at the equation you can see that:

- the gradient is negative due to the
#-3# - the graph has been shifted up by
#7#

Now, find the point of intersection of the graph along the

Therefore,

Now, find the point of intersection of the graph along the

Now sketch the complete graph.
