You start out with $20 and then spend money in a store where every item is $3. Y = -3x + 20. Type how to graph the equation using the y-intercept and slope. Tell where you place the first point and how to find the location of the second point.

    You should always plot the x and y intercepts. Then connect them to graph the line.

    plot the y intercept first then use the slope to find the other points

    so your equation is in Y=mx+b, so m (the slope) is -3 and b (y intercept) is 20 So your first point will at 20 on the y-axis then since your slope is -3 you will go down 3 and over 1 to the right this is your second point
