    and ur y intercept tells u a lot, then u can use ur slope to find the other points

    yes please. and can you tell me how to find the x and y intercepts i know i have to choose numbers and plug them in but do i choose any random numbers?

    first, put it in slope-intercept form. you can do this by subtracting 5x and take it to the other side. you should get -3y=-5x+7 now, you divide -3 by all the other numbers on the right side of the equation. you should get y= 5/3x - 7/3. 5/3 is postivive because a negative divided by a negative equals a positive. your slope should be 5 up, 3 to the right. your y intercept is -7/3. you can put this in decimal form to make it simpler which is about 2.3

    your y-intercept is where you graph on the y - axis. your slope is where you go from that point

    so you can graph -2.3 on the y axis, and from that point, you go 5 up, 3 to the right

    well there r 2 ways to learn it, the slope way or x and y intercept way

    okay lets say m was not a fraction and the equation was y=3x=6 how would u graph that equation

    x is your slope, thats how much you rise and run and the other number, 6 thats your y-intercept (where you put your point on the y-axis) , so what you want to do is graph the 6 on the y axis. The 3 will tell you to go 3 up, and 1 to the left. because 3/1 is the same as 3.

    i meant: from where you graphed 6, you should go 3 up and 1 to the right
