Looking at the

#### Explanation:

**General Form of a Straight Line Equation**

The general form of an equation for a straight line is

**The Gradient or 'Slope'**

**The #y# Intercept**

As for the

**The #x# Intercept**

If you want to figure out the

On the

We know know

So the

This should be enough information to draw the graph!

See the explanation.

#### Explanation:

By definition,

The y-intercept is the value of

The point is

The x-intercept is the value of

Add

Divide both sides by

Switch sides.

The point is

You can plot the x and y-intercepts and draw a straight line through the two points.
