The equation is in the form of y=mx+b where m is equal to the slope and b is the y-intercept (spot where the graph crosses the y-axis). 
So in your equation, the slope is equal to -2. Which means that from the y-intercept of +5, each point is up two units and left one unit.


i dont understand how you are saying to graph it or how you solved that equation to get that. please explain a little better im having troubles with this take home test ad ive read the book twice
