# How do you graph the line #y = 2/3x + 4#?

##### 1 Answer

- Start at the point
# (0,4)# then go up two and three to the right.

Repeat and connect the points with a straight line.

#### Explanation:

Use the y = mx + b form. b is the y intercept - the place where the line crosses the y-axis. ( b = beginning)

The y intercept is the point where

In this equation

So the point to start graphing from is

The x-value is always first in a point

The slope is the angle at which the line leans.

This is the

(m = mountain slope)

In this equation,

Slope equals

( 2 is positive so the line goes up 2: if the value was -2 the line would go down 2)

(3 is positive so the line goes to the right:

If the value was negative the line would go to the left.)

Count 2 up and three to the right and make a point,

Do this procedures several times starting at

The points will connect in a straight line.
