# How do you graph  y=4x+7?

Nov 6, 2014

Step 1: Find any two points on the line.

$x = 0 \implies y = 4 \left(0\right) + 7 = 7 \implies$ Point 1: $\left(0 , 7\right)$

$x = - 1 \implies y = 4 \left(- 1\right) + 7 = 3 \implies$ Point 2: $\left(- 1 , 3\right)$

Step 2: Plot the two points from Step 1, which look like:

Step 3: Draw a straight line through both points, which looks like:

The line in purple is the graph of $y = 4 x + 7$.

I hope that this was helpful.
