algebra two graphing
how do you graph –x + 2y = -2 and find the x-intercept, the y-intercept, and slope
i know you have to chang it in to y=mx+b but that is about it haha

$-x + 2y = -2$

$-x +x+ 2y = -2+x$

$2y = -2+x$

$y = \frac{-2}{2}+\frac{x}{2}$

$y = \frac{x}{2}-1$

To find the x-intercepy make y =0 and to find the y-intercept make x=0.

[SIZE=3]ok so –x + 2y = -2get y=1/2x
