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

The given equation has: slope = $\frac{2}{3}$ y-intercept: $(0, -5)$ To graph this equation, perform the following steps: (1) Plot the y-intercept $(0, -5)$. (2) Use the slope to plot a second point. From $(0, -5)$ move 2 units up (the rise) and 3 units to the right (the run) to reach $(3, -3)$. Plot (3, -3)\$. (3) Connect the two points using a line. (Refer to the graph in the answer part above.)
