# Graph -2x-3

-2x-3
Use the slope-intercept form to find the slope and y-intercept.
The slope-intercept form is y=mx+b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.
y=mx+b
Find the values of m and b using the form y=mx+b.
m=-2
b=-3
The slope of the line is the value of m, and the y-intercept is the value of b.
Slope: -2
y-intercept: -3
Slope: -2
y-intercept: -3
Any line can be graphed using two points. Select two x values, and plug them into the equation to find the corresponding y values.
Choose 0 to substitute in for x to find the ordered pair.
Replace the variable x with 0 in the expression.
f(0)=-2⋅0-3
Simplify the result.
Multiply -2 by 0.
f(0)=0-3
Subtract 3 from 0.
f(0)=-3
The final answer is -3.
-3
-3
The y value at x=0 is -3.
y=-3
y=-3
Choose 1 to substitute in for x to find the ordered pair.
Replace the variable x with 1 in the expression.
f(1)=-2⋅1-3
Simplify the result.
Multiply -2 by 1.
f(1)=-2-3
Subtract 3 from -2.
f(1)=-5
The final answer is -5.
-5
-5
The y value at x=1 is -5.
y=-5
y=-5
Create a table of the x and y values.
