Answer:

See the explanation.

Explanation:

#y=-x-4# is in the slope-intercept form for a linear equation, #y=mx+b#, where #m# is the slope and #b# is the y-intercept. In the given equation, #m=-1# and #b=-4#.

To make a table to graph, give various values to #x# and solve for #y#.

Ordered Pairs
#xcolor(white)(........)y#
#4color(white)(....)-8#
#2color(white)(....)-6#
#0color(white)(....)-4#
#-2color(white)(.)-2#
#-4color(white)(.....)0#

Plot each ordered pair and draw a straight line through the points.
