# How do you graph 2x - 4y = 8 by plotting points?

May 17, 2017

Try different x values to find y (based on your equation)

#### Explanation:

For example, for $x = 1$ you will get $y = - \frac{3}{2}$

Another one: $x = 2$ you will get $y = - 1$

At $x = 4$ your function will be equal to zero.

$y = 0.5 x - 2$
