    First put it in y=mx+b form.\[y=-x-2\] Let me know if you need help on that step. Then you have your slope = -1, and y-intercept = -2 So you have one point so far: (0,-2) One way you can finish the graph right now is to use the slope (in this case, move over 1 and down 1), but more straightforward: Find the x-intercept: \[0=-x-2\] \[x=-2\] Now you have your second point (-2,-0) So plot your two points: (-2,0) and (0,-2) and draw a straight line through them Check your answer http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=-x%3Dy%2B2 when you're done.
