    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.
