Plot the points

Join these two points you will get the curve.

#### Explanation:

Given -

#3x-y=7#

Find the two intercepts. Plot them and

join them with a straight line.

x-intercept

At

#3x-0=7#

#x=7/3=3.3#

#(3.3,0)#

y-intercept

At

#3(0)-y=7#

#y=-7#

#(0,-7)#

Plot the points

Join these two points you will get the curve.

I would rearrange the equation into standard form:

This means that the line has a gradient (slope) of

Graph the function by drawing a line through the point

#### Explanation:

Subtract

Multiply both sides by

This means that the line has a gradient (slope) of
