# How do you solve y=3x-5, y=x-3 by graphing?

Apr 27, 2017

Try different x values on equation and find y (until y values become equal) $x = 1$

#### Explanation:

Let me graph first:

graph{(3x)-5 [-1, 5, -5, 5]}

and then second (equation)

graph{x-3 [-1, 5, -5, 5]}

Now at $x = 1$ you will see that $y = - 2$ (on both equations). Your solution is this point $x = 1$ and $y = - 2$
