# How do you graph the function y=2x+7?

May 20, 2018

slope = 2
y-int = 7

#### Explanation:

$y = 2 x + 7$

this function is already in slope intercept form $y - m x + b$

m = slope
b = y-intercept

m=2
b=7

so mark the y axis at 7 and then your slope is $m = \text{rise"/"run} = \frac{2}{1}$

so up 2 over 1 a few times mark that point and the draw your line that intersects both points.
