Select two points P1 and P2 on the line. Read their coordinates P1(X_1, Y_1), and P2(X_2, Y_2). If the points are given to you that is even better: you will not have to approximate their coordinates.
The slope of the straight line that passes through P1 and P2 is the ratio s=(Y_2-Y_1)/(X_2-X_1).
A slope is a number and cannot be graphed. The line that has the slope can be graphed if you have its complete equation y=slope*x + initial value.
To graph a curve on the TI84 open the Y= editor, type in the second member (right side) of the function say on line Y1= then press the Graph function key.

### D(t)=-2t+18

To graph this equation, we see that it is in the slope/intercept form of y=mx + b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.

d(t)= -2t+18

From this point, we can start graphing the line by using the slope of -2. Since the slope is negative, it goes up to the left. So we go one to the left, and up two.

Good luck.

### How to solve and graph the equation 4x+y+0

The easiest way to solve and graph and equation is to put the equation into the slope intercept form y = mx + b, where m is the slope and b in the y-intercept.

To do this, we subtract 4x from both sides and get y = -4x + 0.

From this we know m = -4 (slope) and the y-intercept is 0.

I always start with the y-intercept and put a point there. Thus, we have a point at (0,0). Using this as a starting point, we now use the slope of -4 to get future points. Since it is negative, we go one unit to the left and up four units. So we have the point (-1,4). Using a ruler, we connect these points and continue on both sides to produce the line.

There is also a great free online program/app called Desmos that you can use to check your work. Type in the equation of the line and it will graph it for you.

Good luck,

Paul

### How do I graph -3,-3 with a slope of 0

To graph (-3, -3) we start at the origin (0,0) and go 3 squares to the left and then 3 squares down.

Slope is defined in many ways, including rise/run, delta y/ delta x, etc.

Since 0 divided by anything is 0, the rise must be zero, so the slope of 0 is a horizontal line.

Put the point and the slope together, we have a horizontal line going through (-3,-3).

Good luck.

### Calculate the slope of the secant line through the points on the graph where x=1 and x=3.

You have to provide the graph. Depending on the graph, the slope of the secant line can be just about anything.

### How do you grsph a slope?

You do not graph a slope as the slope is just one number that characterises a linear function. Rather you need to draw the linear function.
Press the Y= key to enter the function editor. On line Y1= type in a legitimate function such as y1= 3x-2 and press ENTER. Press the GRAPH key to view the graph.

### I am trying to enter a slope formula in the "y=" window, my lists are all cleared but everytime it goes to the graph it tells me "err invalid dim"

I d not understand what you mean by enter a slope formula, but I am going to assume you want to draw the graph of a function y= f(x) and you are having a problem.
1. Press the STAT button and
2. Select 4:PlotsOff
3. Press ENTER
4. Calculator displays DONE
5. Now you can do your graphs.

### X-y = 2

Hello,
y=x+2. If you graph it you find a straight line that has a positive slope and itersects the y axis at y=2.
To graph it
[Diamond][Y=] on line Y1= enter X+2 [ENTER]. Then [Diamond][GRAPH] . Here is what you see. Hope it helps
