Writing an Equation in Slope-Intercept Form from a GRAPH

This tutorial will demonstrate and explain how to use a graph of a linear equation to write the equation in slope-intercept form.

The equation for the second graph!

We found the slope to be -1/2

The y-intercept is -7

The equation in slope-intercept form is :

y = -1/2x - 7

Find 3 ordered pairs that are solutions for this equation.
