Algebra: A Combined Approach (4th Edition)

The given equation has: slope = $-5=\dfrac{-5}{1}\\$ y-intercept = $0$ To graph the equation, perform the following steps: (1) Plot the y-intercept point $(0, 0)$. (2) From $(0, 0)$, use the slope to locate another point. Move 5 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)
