# How do you graph #f(x) = x -4#?

##### 2 Answers

The graph of your function is a straight line.

#### Explanation:

Your function

First you notice that the coefficient of

To plot the graph we can choose two values of

if

if

we can now plot these two points and draw a line through them:

Find the coordinate of the points that intercept the axes. These are (0, -4) and (4, 0). Then trace a line passing through these points.

#### Explanation:

This is a linear function, its shape is a line and it only takes two points to trace. The two points chosen should be the intercepts of the axes. Therefore, you should solve:

This gives you two dots:

When x=0, y=-4: (0, -4).

When y=0, x=4: (4, 0).
