Given the point-slope form of a line find the point and slope we could use to graph
If you mean
y = -3/2 (x+5)
you can see easily that y=0 when x = -5. So, that's where the graph crosses the x-axis. Now, since the slope -s -3/2, just mark a second point, 3 down and 2 to the right from there. Join those two points with a line, and that's the graph.
