Notice that  as y  changes by  +1,  x changes  by   -2

 

So....this is a linear equation  where the slope, m,   = 

 

change in y  / change in  x   =     

 

 +1  / -2    =    -1/2

 

So.....using   y  =   m  ( x  -  x1)  +  y1         where  (x1, y1)  is any point on the graph, we have

 

y  =  (-1/2) ( x - 4)   +  0      simplify

 

y  =  (-1/2)x  +  2

 

 

cool cool cool
