How do you graph this equation by using the slope and a point on the line. this is the question y-2=3(x-5)Answer by jim_thompson5910(28595)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Start with the given equation Distribute Multiply and to get Add 5 to both sides to isolate y Combine like terms and to get Now let's graph Looking at we can see that the equation is in slope-intercept form where the slope is and the y-intercept is Since this tells us that the y-intercept is .Remember the y-intercept is the point where the graph intersects with the y-axis So we have one point Now since the slope is comprised of the "rise" over the "run" this means Also, because the slope is , this means: which shows us that the rise is 3 and the run is 1. This means that to go from point to point, we can go up 3 and over 1 So starting at , go up 3 units and to the right 1 unit to get to the next point Now draw a line through these points to graph So this is the graph of through the points and
