Chapter 3 - Section 3.4 - The Slope of a Line - Exercise Set: 20

Answer

Downward

Work Step by Step

We are given that $m=-3$, which means that the slope of the line is negative. As Example 2 on pg. 154 shows, a line with a negative slope slants downward. In other words, as we move from left to right on the line, the y-value decreases. So the line moves downward from left to right.
