## yanieliz 3 years ago 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.

D. 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.

Which one do you think it is?

3. yanieliz

i personally think its between A and D but i am not so sure.

4. jim_thompson5910

It's neither

5. jim_thompson5910

The y-intercept is negative, not positive

6. yanieliz

* sad face!!* i am not so good at this,teacher taught this to me today.so i am kind of confused.

7. jim_thompson5910

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

8. jim_thompson5910

The -3 is the y-intercept

9. yanieliz

ok i see that :)

10. jim_thompson5910

the slope is 1/2

11. jim_thompson5910

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

12. jim_thompson5910

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

13. yanieliz

so its B? :D

14. jim_thompson5910

you nailed it

15. yanieliz

yay!!! thank you!

you're welcome, glad to be of help
