How do you graph the line #y = 2/3x + 4#?
- Start at the point
# (0,4)#then go up two and three to the right.
Repeat and connect the points with a straight line.
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,
( 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.
