How would you create a #(x,y)# table for the equation #y=2x-1#?
To crate an
So to make a table, you have to pick a few values to plug in. I think that 5 values would be good to start with. Let's say those values are
Note that you can pick any values you want. I just picked these because they're easy to work with.
You can then tabulate these values with x and y as headings, and whatever inputs you choose under x, and whatever outputs you get under y. It can look something like this:
x -4 -2 0 2 4
y-9 -5 -1 3 7
You can then plot these points to see what the graph will look like. The corresponding points are (-4, -9), (-2,-5), (0,-1), (2,3), and (4,7)
