Determine the slope.
Start by selecting two points on the line, such as (6, 0) and (0, −2).
Use them to find the rise and the run and then calculate the slope.
Divide the rise, −2, by the run, 6, to determine the slope.
Find the equation of the line.
Use the y-intercept for b and the slope for m in the equation y = mx + b.
