Answer:

See explanation

Explanation:

I would suggest you chose different values to those I have.

Set #x=10# thus #y=1/2xx10=5#

Giving point 1 #->P_1->(x,y)=(10,5)#

Mark this point on the graph paper

...................................................................................
Set #x=-10# thus #y=1/2xx(-10) = -5#

Giving point 2 #->P_2->(x,y)=(-10,-5)#

Mark this point on the graph paper
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Using a rule draw a line through these two points. Extend the line to the edges of the graph paper area.
