Using complete sentences, explain how to graph y = x - 2 using the slope-intercept method.

• Algebra -

1. Put a point at x = 0, y = -2.

2. Plot another point at x = 2, y = 0.

3. Using a straightedge, draw a straight line through both points, extended to the edges of the graph paper. If done properly, the line will have a 45 degrees slope in this case, becasue the slope is 1.
