# How do you graph y = x + 2 by plotting points?

May 27, 2016

Set a value for x and then find the corresponding value for y.

#### Explanation:

Set a value for $x \setminus$ and then find the corresponding value for $y$ using the line equation $y = x + 2$
The values of $x$ are selected randomly.

$x = 1 \to y = 3 \setminus$ the coordinates of the first point are $\setminus \left(1 , 3\right)$
$x = 5 \to y = 7 \setminus$ the coordinates of the second point are $\setminus \left(5 , 7\right)$

Trace the line that passes through the two points $\left(1 , 3\right)$ and $\left(5 , 7\right)$
