# How do you graph y = 4x - 3 by plotting points?

Apr 12, 2018

Start at (0,-3) and then go up 4 right 1

#### Explanation:

To graph $y = 4 x - 3$ you would first graph the y-intercept, -3, and then using the slope, 4, to complete the rest of the graph.

Start at point (0,-3) then go up 4 right one which would leave you at point (1,1), the second point and you would continue going up 4 right one to plot each point.

TO build the graph backwards, you could go down 4, left one which would leave you at point (-1,-7)
