That will depend on what equations but in general if it has a slope of -3 then it will have a down hill slope

What is the graph if the slope is negative?

If the slope is negative, or going downhill, then that means the graph will be a regular coordinate system (x and y axis). The only thing that is different is the direnction of the slope. A positive, or regular, slope formula, looks like this: y= 2x + 3, for example. Since there are no negative signs, the slope would be going upwards. But a negative slope, like you are talking about, would look either like this: y= -2x + 3 ( negative sign in front of 2 ). Remember: If the equation looks like this: y= 2x - 3, it would still be positive, because it is behind the 2x. Good luck!

What is the difference between parallel and perpendicular equations?

On a graph, parallel equations will run forever and never touch, whereas, perpendicular equations will make a right angle with each other.In an equation, parallel lines will have the same slope (the mx part of the equation).Ex:y = (1/3)x + 2y = (1/3)x + 4Perpendicular equations have negative reciprocal slopes of each other.Ex:y = (3/5)x + 6y = -(5/3)x + 4

Why is m the symbol used for slope in mathematical equations?

In linear equations, the multiple of the x-term dictates the gradient of the graph when plotted. Thus y=3x has a gradient (or slope) of 3. As it is the "multiple" of the x-term, "m" seems a sensible letter to use.

Which best describes the effect on the graph of y equals 4x plus 8 if the y-intercept is changed to -3?

If you were to graph both equations side by side, you would see that they are parallel lines. Both equations have the same slope it is just that the line would be moved down in the graph because of the intercept change.

If your trying to find a slope in a graph and the first point starts in corrandant 3 would it be negative?

I have no idea what a "corrandant" is, but I suspect that the answer to the question is NO.

What is the slope of the graph of the equation?


How can i graph c -4 2 and slope 3 2?

You can graph X -4 2 and slope 3 2 by first finding the values of X and Y and then using those values to sketch your graph.

How wold you classify two linear equations have the same y-intercept and different slopes?

Two linear equations (or lines) with the same y-intercept and different slopes are intersecting lines. They intersect at the y-intercept. If the slopes are negative reciprocals (ex: one slope is 3 and one slope it -1/3) then they are perpendicular lines.

What is the slope of the graph of y -3x?

If you mean: y = -3x then the slope is -3 and there is no y intercept

What is the slope of the graph of 2y equals 6x plus 3?

y=3x+(3/2), so the slope is 3 or (3/1).

How can you tell if two equations in slope- intercept form would graph as parallel?

If the slope is the same, they are parallel. [Also, if the slopes of the two lines multiply to -1, they are perpendicular.] The slope-intercept form is y = mx + b where m and b are constants. If two different equations in this form both have the same value for m, they are parallel. Example y = 3x + 3 y = 3x - 10 As the top answer suggests, m is the slope.

What if the slope is negative already what would be the reciprocal?

It would be the negative of the negative reciprocal. And since the negative of a negative is a posivie, it is the positive reciprocal.. For example, if the slope was -3, the other would be 1/3.
