# How do you graph the equation y=-3/4x-1?

Aug 9, 2017

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

First, calculate two points from the equation and plot them on the graph:

For $x = 0$:

$y = \left(- \frac{3}{4} \cdot 0\right) - 1$

$y = 0 - 1$

$y = - 1$ or $\left(0 , - 1\right)$

For $x = 4$

$y = \left(- \frac{3}{4} \times 4\right) - 1$

$y = - 3 - 1$

$y = - 4$ or $\left(4 , - 4\right)$

graph{(x^2 + (y+1)^2 - 0.125)((x-4)^2+(y+4)^2-0.125)=0 [-20, 20, -10, 10]}

Now, draw a line through the two points:

graph{(y + ((3/4)x)+1)(x^2 + (y+1)^2 - 0.125)((x-4)^2+(y+4)^2-0.125)=0 [-20, 20, -10, 10]}
