# How do you graph the function y=4x?

See below

#### Explanation:

The basic form of the graph is:

$y = a x + b$

$a$ represents the slope and $b$ represents the y intercept. In this case however, we don't have a y intercept. So our slope is just 4. That means for every increase in x, y goes up by 4 and for every decrease in x, y goes down by 4. Thus, your graph will look like this:

graph{4x [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
