Algebra3!!!!

How would you would graph the linear equation y = -2x + 6?

First plot the point (6,0) and then count up two and to the right 1.

First plot the point (6,0) and then count down two and to the right 1

First plot the point (0,6) and then count up two and to the right 1

First plot the point (0,6) and then count down two and to the right 1


What's your answer?


i thought it was the second one


almost, but not quite.

In this equation, what is the y-intercept?


6?


That's right!!
Now what point is a y-intercept of 6?

Is it (6,0) or (0,6)??


0,6


Right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So which answer is correct?


the 3rd one?


OK. so point (0,6) is correct. Now, let's deal with the slope. In your equation, what is the slope?


[5x-2]=8? a 6/5 b1/2 c _6/5 d _1
