graphing question

Write the equation of the line with slope 4 and y-intercept (0, –5). Then graph the line

i wrote the equation
which i think is
y=4x-5

i point the y intercept (0,-5)
in the graph how do i find the other point

would the 4x
become 4/1 x
y=4/1x-5
then move run and rise
run of 1
rise of 4 from my -5 point
please explain to me how to get this or are the formate i am missing some where

You have the equation right, and the 0,-5 point correct. For the other point, choose any x, and solve for y. Say x=4, then y= 4x -5 or y=11. Now you have the second point, 4,11

The last paragraph, you can do that, but it is very error prone when graphing small graphs. Avoid it.

alright thanks i under stand now thank you
