# How do you graph y-1=3(x+6)?

May 8, 2018

Rearrange into y= mx+b form

#### Explanation:

Our goal is too change this equation $y - 1 = 3 \left(x + 6\right)$ into a more recognizable equation $y = m x + b$

We will start by expanding the right side.

$y - 1 = 3 x + 18$

Now we can add one to both sides.

$y = 3 x + 19$

This new equation tells us that the y-intercept happens when y=19 & that for ever x-increase your y-increase will be 3.
