9-90.

Use the rule $y = -2x + 5$ to answer the questions below.

1. What is the slope of the line?

Pick two points on the line and find the change in $y$-values over the change in $x$-values to find the slope.
What do you get? Does this value correspond with a value in the rule above?

2. Where does the line cross the $y$-axis?

Where on the graph does the line cross the $y$-axis?
Also, logically, the graph will cross the $y$-axis when $x = 0$.
Using the rule, can you calculate this value?
What do you get? Does this value correspond with a value in the rule above?

$(0, 5)$
