When a linear equation is written in slopeintercept form, it is easy to find the slope and yintercept of the line, making the graph of the linear equation easy to create. In the
above example, y = 3x + 2, the slope is 3 and the yintercept is 2. To create the graph, we first plotted the yintercept by putting a point on the yaxis at 2. From that point, we used the slope of 3 (or 3/1) to tell us to move up 3 units and right one unit. We plotted a second point there. After we connected the two points, our line was created.
