## Elementary and Intermediate Algebra: Concepts & Applications (6th Edition)

The slope is rise over run. The slope is 2, so the rise is 2 and the run is 1. To graph the line, perform the following steps: (1) Plot the y-intercept $(0, 0)$. (2) From $(0, 0)$, move 2 units up (the rise) and 1 unit to the right (the run) to reach $(1, 2)$. Plot $(1, 2)$. (3) The slope 2 is equivalent to $\dfrac{−2}{−1}$, so the rise is $−2$ and the run is $−1$. From $(0, 0)$, move 2 units down and 1 unit to the left to reach $(−1, −2)$. Plot $(−1, −2)$. (4) Connect the three points using a line to complete the graph. Refer to the attached image in the answer part above for the graph.
