My suggestion is short alt and explanatory sentence below the image.

Wouldn't that be too long for alt-text?

Hi Darrell,

I would describe it with a short alt an explanatory sentence below the image. e.g. x-axis is a horizontal line, y-axis is perpendicular on the x-axis. Drawing a line from x-axis with a 45 degree angle clockwise will intersect with x-axis and y-axis in two points x-intercept and y-intercept.

Hi all,
I’m working on a project to teach mathematical concepts.  What is the best manner to describe graphs, such as the one below
