# How do you graph #y=7/2x-2#?

##### 1 Answer

See procedure below.

#### Explanation:

The following procedure will give you the coordinates of 2 data points. As we work them out, put them on your graph paper. Then you can draw a line between them and extend them as far as you like.

Plug in 0 for y and find the value of x that satisfies the equation:

If

Now, solve for x.

Add 2 to both sides. Then we have

Multiply both sides by

So

Cancel where possible.

So we have

Therefore, you can plot a data point at

Repeat, except plug in 0 for x. Starting with:

If

That simplifies to

Therefore you can plot a second point at

I hope this helps,
