# How do you graph y= 4x-5?

May 18, 2017

This is the form $y = m x + b$

Where $m x$ is the slope and the $b$ value is the y-intercept

First plot the $b$ value in this case it is -5

Then from that point $\left(0 , - 5\right)$ use the slope to find the other points

$S l o p e = \frac{r i s e}{r u n}$

Rise translates to the amount of units "up or down" you go

Up = Positive
Down = Negative

Run translates to the amount of units "left or right" you go

Left = Negative
Right = Positive

So starting from the point $\left(0 , - 5\right)$ go up 4 units and right 1 unit or down 4 and left 1 unit since they both make the slope of 4 --> $\left(\frac{4}{1}\right) \mathmr{and} \left(- \frac{4}{-} 1\right)$
