# How do you graph the equation y-2=3(x-1)?

Jun 18, 2018

As below.

#### Explanation:

$y - 2 = 3 \left(x - 1\right)$

$3 x - y = 3 - 2 = 1$

$\frac{x}{\frac{1}{3}} + \frac{y}{-} 1 = 1$ is the intercept form of the equation.

Now we know the two points on the line as

$\left(\frac{1}{3} , 0\right) , \left(0 , - 1\right)$

By plotting the two points on a graph sheet and joining them gives the line required.
