Answer:

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

Explanation:

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

#x= 1-> y=3 \ # the coordinates of the first point are #\ (1,3)#
#x= 5-> y=7\ # the coordinates of the second point are #\ (5,7)#

Trace the line that passes through the two points #(1,3)# and #(5,7)#
