A line passing through

graph{1/4x-1 [-7.82, 12.18, -4.6, 5.4]}

#### Explanation:

We need to find two points, then join up the line. The natural points to go for are those on the *x*-axis and the *y*-axis.

To find the point where it crosse the *y*-axis:

Let

You can also tell this from the value of

Now to find where it crosses the *x*-axis:

Let

We can now join up these two points like so:

graph{1/4x-1 [-7.82, 12.18, -4.6, 5.4]}
