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

Aug 1, 2017

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

First, solve the equation for two points:

For $x = 0$: $y = 2 \left(0\right) - 1 = 0 - 1 = - 1$ giving: $\left(0 , - 1\right)$

For $x = 5$: $y = 2 \left(5\right) - 1 = 10 - 1 = 9$ giving: $\left(5 , 9\right)$

Plot these two points, then draw a straight line through the points:

graph{(y - 2x + 1)((x)^2+(y+1)^2-0.25)((x-5)^2+(y-9)^2-0.25)=0 [-30, 30, -15, 15]}
