For the graph on the right, determine if the slope is positive, negative, or zero, and whether the y-value of the y-intercept is positive, negative, or zero. I will attach a picture of the graph in a reply to this.

So the graph is going DOWN from left to right, correct?

Right.

If it is going down and not up from left to right, what do you believe that implies?

Hero, didn't you reverse the things in your hint ?

That the slope is positive and the y-value of the y-intercept is also positive.

Aw shucks. I meant to say "left to right"

If the slope of a line decreases from left to right, then its graph is negative If the slope of a line increases from left to right, then its graph is positive. If the slope of a line is steady from left to right, then the graph of the line has zero slope. Which statement do you believe applies to the graph above?

In other words, it is negative.

Yes, it is negative. Sorry about the confuzzling. It happens when I get too excited with a question. I start typing too fast and my fingers move faster than my brain sometimes, sadly.
