What is the slope and intercept for #y=3x# and how would you graph it?
The slope would be
1)Slope intercept form is
2)Your form is also in
3)You would begin by graphing the y-intercept, which in this case is
4)Because the slope is positive, you would have a line that slants to the right. Slope is rise/run and
5)Go up three units and over one unit (making sure you are going to the right of the (0,0) point.
6)Continue to graph, following the pattern, 3 up, 1 over, plotting the points as you go.
