 Question 621524: Graph the equation by finding the slope and y-intercept. x + 7y = -7 Answer by math-vortex(472)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Hi, there-- . An easy way to find the slope and the y-intercept is to rearrange the given equation into its slope-intercept form (y=mx+b). . . Subtract x from both sides of the equation. . Divide both sides of the equation by 7. . Now the equation is in slope-intercept form (y=mx+b). The slope m is the coefficient of x, -1/7. The y-intecept b is -1. . The equation is graphed below. The line crosses the y-axis at the point (0,-1) and the slope is 1/7 (down 1 unit for every 7 units to the right.) . .
