# How do you graph y=x+4?

See Explanation.

#### Explanation:

select any value you wish. Add 4 to it. The number you now have is the value of y

Suppose I chose the value of 3 as $x$. Then $3 + 4 = 7$

So when $x = 3 , y = 7$

Ok! Lets pick another value for $x$. I chose$\text{ } - 10$

Add 4 and you get $- 6$

So when $x = - 10 , y = - 6$
