Example 4.5.12

Graph \(y=-\frac{2}{3}x+10\text{.}\)

(a)Setting up the axes in an appropriate window and making sure that the \(y\)-intercept will be visible, and that any “run” and “rise” amounts we wish to use will not make triangles that are too big or too small.
(b)The slope is \(-\frac{2}{3}=\frac{-2}{3}=\frac{2}{-3}\text{.}\) So we can try using a “run” of \(3\) and a “rise” of \(-2\) or a “run” of \(-3\) and a “rise” of \(2\text{.}\)
(c)Connecting the points with a straight line and adding labels.
