Your slope is m = -2 Your intercept is b = 0 Your equation is y = -2x -------------------------- Let x=0, then y = 0 Let x=1, then y = -2 Let x=2, then y = -4 __________________ You have three points: (0,0),(1,-2),(2,-4) Plot the points and draw a line thru them to see your graph. ------------------ =================== Cheers, Stan H.
