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

Solve for $y$ by subtracting $2x$ to both sides: $2x+y-2x=0-2x \\y=-2x$ This means the given equation has the same graph as $y=-2x$. This equation has: slope = $-2$ y-intercept: $(0, 0)$ To graph the given equation, perform the following steps: (1) Plot the y-intercept $(0, 0)$ (2) Use the slope to plot another point. From $(0, 0)$, move 2 units down (the rise) and 1 unit to the right (the run) to reach $(1, -2)$. Plot $(1, -2)$. (3) Connect the two points using a line to complete the graph. (Refer to the attached image in the answer part above for the graph.)
