In Exercises 29 to 34, draw the line described.With y -intercept 5 and with m = - 3 4

To determine

To draw:

The line with the given y-intercept 5 and slope m=-34.

Explanation

The y-intercept means that the value of x is zero.

Thus the corresponding point is 0, 5

First we plot the point 0, 5.

The slope of the line can be written as -34

The slope denotes change in ychange in x

By comparing this,

Change in y is taken as -3.

Change in x is taken as 4.

If change in y is positive then move upwards in y axis and change in y is negative then move downwards in y axis from the corresponding point.

If change in x is positive then move right in x axis and change in x is negative then move left in x axis from the corresponding point
