**Graphing a Line Using Its Slope and y-Intercept**

The equation of a line with a slope of m and a y-intercept of (0, b) is y = mx + b.

To graph a line that is written in slope-intercept form:

- Plot the y-intercept on the coordinate plane.
- Use the slope to find another point on the line.
- Join the plotted points with a straight line.

*Example: *

Graph the line. y = 4x – 3

**Solution:**

This line is given in slope-intercept form: y = mx + b.

The y-intercept of the line is –3. b = –3

The slope of the line is 4. m = 4

Therefore the graph of the equation is shown below.

**Example. **

Determine the equation of the graph that is shown.

* Solution*:

The *y*-intercept of the line is 1. ** b = 1**.

The slope of the line is –2/3. *m* = –2/3.

Substitute these values into the slope-intercept equation of a line: *y = mx + b*

The equation of the line is .
