# How do you graph the function f(x)=-1/2x+3?

Oct 26, 2014

One way to do this is find any two distict points on the graph then draw a straight line through them. Since

$f \left(0\right) = - \frac{1}{2} \left(0\right) + 3 = 3$

and

$f \left(2\right) = - \frac{1}{2} \left(2\right) + 2 = 2$,

the point $\left(0 , 3\right)$ and $\left(2 , 2\right)$ are on the graph.
(Note: You can also use intercepts.)

So, by plotting those points and drawing a straight line through them,

I hope that this was helpful.
