Graphing linear equations using slope and intercept Graphing an equation by using its slope and  y- intercept is usually quite easy.  1. State the equation in  y- form.  2. Locate the  y -intercept on the graph (that is, one of the points on the line).  3. Write the slope as a ratio (fraction) and use it to locate other points on the line.
