I need to write the equation of the line with given slope and y-intercept. Then I have to graph each line using the slope and y-intercept.
Slope: 5; y-intercept: (0, -2)
The slope-intercept form of a line is:
, where m=slope, and (0,b)=y-intercept.
Your slope is 5 and b is -2, substitute them where they belong in your formula:
To graph this, plot (0,-2). From that point, use the slope to graph another point. The slope
. Keep the sign with the rise and always run to the right to keep from getting confused. In this case, your slope is +, so go up 5 units and right 1 unit and plot your second point, at what should be (1,3). Connect your points and you should have a line that looks like:
