# How do you graph 4x-3y=20?

Dec 30, 2017

$y = \frac{4}{3} \left(x - 5\right)$

#### Explanation:

First, convert the equation into the form of $y = m x + b$.

$4 x - 3 y = 20$

$- 3 y = 20 - 4 x$

$3 y = 4 x - 20$

$y = \frac{4 x - 20}{3}$

$y = \frac{4 \left(x - 5\right)}{3}$

$y = \frac{4}{3} \left(x - 5\right)$

Now, you can graph it on a coordinate plane by plugging in values for $x$ and $y$, and then connecting the dots together. Here is the graph for $y = \frac{4}{3} \left(x - 5\right)$:
