Write an equation of the line in slope-intercept form given the graph below.

1 Answer

Answer:

y=-1/3x-1

Step-by-step explanation:

1. Find the slope.

Start from the point on the y-axis and count down and over until you get to the other point marked on the graph. This gets you -1/3

Slope is -1/3

2. Find where the line crosses the y-axis. This is the y-intercept. On this graph, the line crosses the y-axis at (0,-1). The y-value is the intercept.

3. Put the equation in slope-intercept form. Slope intercept form is y=mx+b with mx being the slope and b being the y-intercept.

y=-1/3x-1
