To graph the equation y=1/2x-3 using the slope and y-intercept, you would have to do which of the following? A. 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. B. 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. C. 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.

    The y-intercept is negative, not positive

    Notice how we have y = 1/2x - 3

    The -3 is the y-intercept

    this tells you to go up one and to the right two

    to jump from point to point, this helps you find another point given one point
