To graph the equation y equals one half times x minus 3 using the slope and y-intercept, you would have to do which of the following? Graph the y-intercept, 3. From that point, move down 1 and to the right 2 to plot another point. Then draw a line that passes through both points. Graph the y-intercept, -3. From that point, move up 1 and to the right 2 to plot another point. Then draw a line that passes through both points. Graph the y-intercept, -3. From that point, move down 1 and to the right 2 to plot another point. Then draw a line that passes through both points. Graph the y-i
Well your equation looks like this \[y = (1/2)x -3\] Using the slope-intercept form, which we already have here, -3 is your y intercept. Your slope is found to be 1/2 This tells us you should start at (0,-3) and use rise over run to find new points. In this case, up 1, and right 2. Remember, if one numbers were negative (ex -1/2 or 1/-2), they would go in the opposite direction.
