## rebecca1233 2 years ago To graph the equation y = 1/2-3 using the slope and y-intercept, you would have to do which of the following?

1. rebecca1233

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-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.

@precal

3. AriPotta

what's the y-intercept?

4. rebecca1233

-3?

5. AriPotta

yep, so we can eliminate the first and fourth choice, because they're saying that the y-intercept is 3, which it isn't

6. AriPotta

and what's the slope?

7. rebecca1233

1/2?

8. AriPotta

exactly, and to graph a line with a slope of 1/2, you'd do what? would you go up 1, or down one?

9. rebecca1233

go up ?

10. AriPotta

yes. so you're answer is the second choice :) good job
