If you mean a slope of -12 through the point (5, 3) the equation is y = -12x+63

### How do you graph the slope of a function?

For example, if the slope at a certain point is 1.5, you can
draw a line that goes through the specified point, with that slope.
The line would represent the slope at that point.
If you want to graph the slope at ALL POINTS, take the
derivative of the function, and graph the derivative. The
derivative shows the slope of a function at all points.

### What is the slope intercept form of the line that has a slope of negative 3 and contains the points of 4 and negative 5?

The slope intercept form is: y=mx+b where m is the slope and b
is the y-intercept.
Since you already know the slope, you can plug that into the
equation.
y=-3x+b
The only thing left to do is to find out what b is. To do this,
plug the x and y value of the point it goes through into the
equation and solve for b. Good luck.
