# Chapter 3 - Section 3.5 - Equations of Lines - Exercise Set: 2

Refer to the image below for the graph.

#### Work Step by Step

The given equation has: slope = $-4=\dfrac{-4}{1\\}$ y-intercept = $-1$ To graph the equation, perform the following steps: (1) Plot the y-intercept point $(0, -1)$. (2) From $(0, -1)$, use the slope to locate another point. Move 4 units down (the rise) and 1 unit to the right (the run) to end at the point $(1, -5)$. (3) Connect the two points using a straight line to complete the graph. (refer to the attached image in the answer part for the graph)
