# How do you graph using slope and intercept of #2x+y=8#?

##### 1 Answer

(see below for method used in generating this graph)

#### Explanation:

The slope of a line in the form

The y-intercept is the value of

In this case

and

Based on the

The slope of

So we can build a table of a few Sample points:

Plotting these coordinates on the Cartesian plane and drawing a straight line through them should give a graph that looks like the Answer above.
