The equation is .

(Write the equation in the form of *y* = *m**x* + *b*)

Compare the equation with slope-intercept form *y* = *m**x* + b.where *m* is slope and *b* is *y*-intercept.

slope(*m*) = 6 and *y*-intercept is(*b*) = 7.

*y*-intercept is 7, so the line crosses the *y*-axis at (0, 7)

Using slope find the next point.

Slope(*m*) = = .

- Plot the point (0, 7)
- Start at point (0, 7),since the rise is 6. Move 6 units down.
- The run is 1. Move 1 unit left then plot the point (, 1)
- Draw a line through these points.
