 Question 591783: How do you graph y=-7xAnswer by jim_thompson5910(28715)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Looking at we can see that the equation is in slope-intercept form where the slope is and the y-intercept is note: really looks like 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 -7 and the run is 1. This means that to go from point to point, we can go down 7 and over 1 So starting at , go down 7 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
