y = -1/6 x + 5
identify the slope and the y-intercept of the equation.?

how you would graph this line using the slope-intercept method. ?

my teacher is saying im still getting the wrong answer:( please help

asked by ty
  1. The slope is -1/6. The y-intercept is 5. To graph you start at (0, 5) and you go up once and over to the left 6 times. rise/run
