How many unitsshould each tick mark on that unnumbered axis represent? y-axis coordinates (-5,3) x-axis coordinates (3,5) I think!! Please help asapAnswer by richard1234(5390)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!You will have to count how many tick marks the y-value changes for each tick mark on the x-axis. Suppose that if you are moving along the line and you move z tick marks down for every tick mark moved right on the x-axis. Given this, you will have to note how many units a tick mark on the x-axis is, and set the slope (change in y over change in x) equal to -2/3. I cannot solve this now because I do not have a diagram, nor are the points (-5,3), (3,5) of any use to me (this line actually has positive slope, not slope of -2/3).
