## Intermediate Algebra: Connecting Concepts through Application

Recall: The line $y=m x+b$ has a slope of $m$ and a $y$-intercept of $(0, b)$. Thus, the given line has $\left(0, -6\right)$ as $y$-intercept. With a slope of $\dfrac{2}{15}$, use the concept of the slope being the rise over run by moving $2$ units up (the rise) and $15$ units to the right (the run) from the point $(0, -6)$ to obtain the point $(15, -4)$. Plot the two points then connect them using a straight line. Refer to the graph above.
