In Exercises 29 to 34, draw the line described.With x -intercept - 3 and with m = 0.25

To determine

To draw:

The line with the given x-intercept -3 and slope m=0.25

Explanation

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

Thus the corresponding point is -3, 0

First we plot the point -3, 0.

The slope of the line can be written as 14

m=0.25=25100=14

The slope denotes change in ychange in x

By comparing this,

Change in y is taken as 1.

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
