To graph y = -5x:

Slope-intercept form is y = mx + b

y = -5x + 0 {put a 0 in, to show the y-intercept}

To graph:

- put a point on 0 on the y-axis, that is the y-intercept

- from there, move down 5 and to the right 1 and put another point, since the slope is -5/1

- draw a line through the two points
