7-85.

On graph paper, graph the line that goes through the points $\left(–6, 3\right)$ and $\left(–3, –1\right)$. 7-85 HW eTool (Desmos). Homework Help ✎

1. What is the slope of the line?

Draw a slope triangle to calculate the change in $y$ over the change in $x$.

$-\frac{4}{3}$

1. What is the $y$‑intercept?

At what point does the line cross the $y$-axis?

(0, −5)

1. Find the equation of the line.

Remember $y=mx+b$.

Use the table in the eTool below to graph the line.
