The easiest way to solve and graph and equation is to put the equation into the slope intercept form y = mx + b, where m is the slope and b in the y-intercept.

To do this, we subtract 4x from both sides and get y = -4x + 0.

From this we know m = -4 (slope) and the y-intercept is 0.

I always start with the y-intercept and put a point there. Thus, we have a point at (0,0). Using this as a starting point, we now use the slope of -4 to get future points. Since it is negative, we go one unit to the left and up four units. So we have the point (-1,4). Using a ruler, we connect these points and continue on both sides to produce the line.

There is also a great free online program/app called Desmos that you can use to check your work. Type in the equation of the line and it will graph it for you.

Good luck,

The equation of any straight line, called a linear equation, can be written as: **y** = mx + b, where m is the slope of the line and b is the **y**-**intercept**. The **y**-**intercept** of this line is the value of **y** at the point where the line crosses the **y** axis.

The "slope intercept form of the equation of a (the) line" is y=mx+b, where m is the slope of the line and b is the y-intercept.

We are given the slope of 1/2, so m= 1/2.

We can now write y=1/2 x + b.

Since the point (-2,-3) is on the line, we can substitute it in and solve for b. We put the -2 in for x and -3 in for y.

-3 = 1/2(-2) +b

-3 = -1 + b

-3 + 1 = -1 + b +1

-2 =b

Thus, the equation of the line is y= 1/2 x -2

To check if we did this correctly, plug in the point (-2, -3) to see if it works.

Left Side Right Side

-3 = 1/2 (-2) -2

= -1-2

= -3

We are given the slope of 1/2, so m= 1/2.

We can now write y=1/2 x + b.

Since the point (-2,-3) is on the line, we can substitute it in and solve for b. We put the -2 in for x and -3 in for y.

-3 = 1/2(-2) +b

-3 = -1 + b

-3 + 1 = -1 + b +1

-2 =b

Thus, the equation of the line is y= 1/2 x -2

To check if we did this correctly, plug in the point (-2, -3) to see if it works.

-3 = 1/2 (-2) -2

= -1-2

= -3

Simplify and put it into slope-intercept form:

y=9x-15

From the above the slope is readily seen to be 9 and the y-intercept is -15.

If this is homework be sure to show your work.

That is an equation describing a straight line. The "slope-intercept" form of a line is

y = mx + b

where m is the slope (change in y-value / change in x-value)

and b is the y-intercept (the point where the line crosses the y-axis when x=0)

Positive slope means the line is rising and negative slope means it's falling.

You can rewrite the original equation 2x - 4y -9 = 0 in slope-intercept form:

y = (1/2)x - (9/4)

So you know the slope is positive 1/2 (line rises 1 y-unit for each 2 x-unit change) and crosses the y-axis at -9/4. With this information you can graph the line.

y = mx + b

where m is the slope (change in y-value / change in x-value)

and b is the y-intercept (the point where the line crosses the y-axis when x=0)

Positive slope means the line is rising and negative slope means it's falling.

You can rewrite the original equation 2x - 4y -9 = 0 in slope-intercept form:

y = (1/2)x - (9/4)

So you know the slope is positive 1/2 (line rises 1 y-unit for each 2 x-unit change) and crosses the y-axis at -9/4. With this information you can graph the line.

use the slope-intercept form to graph y=2/3x+4

The equation of a straight line is given by y=mx + b where y if the y intercept on a graph and x is the x intercept on a graph and m is the slope of the line

Using the given information of ( -4, 6), m=8

-4 is the x intercept, 6 is the y intercept and the slope is 8.

Plugging these values into the y = mx + b gives 6 = (8) (-4) + b solving for b gives b = 32

Going back to the original equation of a straight line gives the equation of y = 8x + 32

Hope this helps Loringh PS Please leave a rating for me Thank you
