# How do you graph 3x - 1 = 5x - y ?

Jun 18, 2018

#### Answer:

$y = 2 x + 1$

#### Explanation:

I would move all the y terms to the left of the equal sign and the rest to the right of it, so you have y expressed with x and the constant, like this:
$y = 5 x - 3 x + 1 = 2 x + 1$
Then you can either use a program like Geogebra (which is free) or make a table of x and y values and plot it on a graph paper. As this is a first degree graph (x and y is of the 1st degree), you only need two points on the graph, for instance y=1 when x=0, x=-1/2 when y=0.
