    To graph a line, you just need 2 points, pick any 2 values for x and solve y

    Oh, they gave you choices... y = m*x+b b - is where it crosses the y axis m - the slope of the line

    yep, the line crosses y axis at -6, and for each change in -1 unit in the y, you get 6 units in the left, for slope -1/6

    For practice if needed, try and write the equations for the other 3 graphs
