    a.) y = - 2x - 2 b.)y = - 3x - 2 c.)y = - 2x - 4 d.)y = - 3x - 4

    looks like a slope of -3 and y intercept of -4

    Look at the graph to find points where you can see the exact values. (-2,2) and (-1,-1) are two such points. Difference of 1 in the x values gives a difference of -3 in the y values, so the slope is -3 (y goes down as x goes up). The y intercept is just the value of y where the line crosses the y axis, and that is -4. the formula for the line in slope intercept form is y = mx + b where m is slope and b is y-intercept, so y = -3x -4, choice d).

    ya...........for sure its d firstly the y -intercept is -4 and secondly the graph passes through (-2,2)

    What is the slope of a line perpendicular to the line in this graph? i got -1/3

    i think you forgot to take the reciprocal of it

    ohh so it would just be 1/3 instead of -1/3?

    Slope of a perpendicular line will be -1/m. m in this graph is 1/3 (3 units to the right for x to make 1 unit up for y), so the correct answer would be -1/(1/3) or -3. you want the line to be going steeply down from left to right

    move 1 unit right in x, down 3 in y

    the reciprocal of a # is what you get when you take 1 divided by the #

    always good to mark off a pair of points with the new equation to make sure the line is what you expect!

    If the slope is -1, then it should move one point down and one to the right, like in aaa.gif

    look carefully at the choices. which one has (-4, 2) as a point, and a slope of -1
