every X-axis number, go down 2 (y-axis numbers)
\[y=-2x+3\] To skectch; find the \(x\) intercept and \(y\) intercept. \(y\)-interecept: \(x\) = \(0\) \(x\)-intercept: \(y\)\=\(0\)
I'm asking how I would work the equation out and do the whole (-1, 1) thing.

Y=Mx+B
the "B" is the number on the y-axis

are you still confused?
Yes.
sorry i didnt see it was -2, i thought it was positive 2.................after you find the "b" you go down 2 (to the right)
|dw:1342159875720:dw|
(0,3).....(1,1).....(2,-1)
So I find B by graphing 3, and then go down -2?
Why did it go over 1?
that how you graph it.....
after you find the "dots" on the graph, you can make a line

Why did my negative 2 become positive, and where did (2, -1) come from -_-
|dw:1342160578279:dw|
So I basically put 1 over the number with the x next to it. +3 = 3, and 2x = 1/2x which means down 2, and over one, which will give me the correct answer.
its becoming negative not positive
Kk
"So I basically put 1 over the number with the x next to it.".....yes, the x is the x-axis
okay.
the "+3" lies on the y-axis
which is why i started off with (0,3).......it doesnt lie on the x-axis [x,y] < the 3 replaces the y.
