The correct answer to this question is Y = -2x - 4. The slope of an equation refers to the proportion of rise/run, or the distance the line travels on the vertical axis (or y-axis), which is the rise, compared to the distance the line travels on the horizontal axis (or x-axis), which is the run.

The intercept is the point at which the line intersects with the horizontal access (or x-axis), which in this case is -2. Because the line travels downwards as it moves to the right, we know the slope is negative, and therefore the answer is Y = -2x - 4.   Reply alfardan.lamar

This is wrong, you use rise/run which will be up 4 and -2 to the left so it will be y=2x-2   Reply John Smith

Y=-2x+-4
Y=-2x-4
Y = -2x + -4
Y = -2x - 4   Reply Search for Google images Select a recommended image
