## Elementary Algebra

Write the given equation in the form $y=mx + b$ to obtain: $2y = -x+4 \\\dfrac{2y}{2} =\dfrac{-x+4}{2} \\y = \dfrac{-1}{2}x + 2$ (note that this equation is equivalent to the original equation) To graph this equation, perform the following steps: (1) Create a table of values by assigning $x= -6, -3, 0, 3, 6$ and then solving for the corresponding value of $y$ for each one. (refer to the attached image below) (2) Plot each point from the table of values; then, connect them using a line. (refer to the attached image in the answer part above)
