# How do you graph y= 5/4x+2?

Jul 14, 2016

Since $y = \frac{5}{4} x + 2$ is a linear equation, we only need to find two solution coordinates; plot them and draw a line through them.

#### Explanation:

$y = \frac{5}{4} x + 2$ is a linear equation (in slope-intercept form, although I won't particularly use this information)

As long as we pick values of $x$ that are multiples of $4$, we we obtain integer values for $y$ (which should make the plotting easier).

The values of $x$ that I decided to use are $0$ and $4$ giving the $\left(x , y\right)$ solution points $\left(0 , 2\right)$ and $\left(4 , 7\right)$

Plotting these points and drawing a line through them produced the image:
