# How do you create a table and graph the equation #y=2x-1#?

##### 1 Answer

You can create a table by substituting any value for

- Let
#x=0#

Then,

#y=2(0)-1#

#y=-1# - Let
#x=1#

Then,

#y=2(1)-1=2-1#

#y=1# - Let
#x=2#

Then,

#y=2(2)-1=4-1#

#y=3#

We can then make a table for

So, you'll get three points on the graph with x-coordinates and y-coordinates that can be taken from the table as

Plot the points, and pass a straight line through them. The graph will look something like this:
