Before beginning on the x-y table, note that there are two terms on the right side of this equation that can be combined because they both contain and x. When you combine the -3x with the +6x the resulting equation is: . . Now you can create an x-y table by assigning values to x and calculating the corresponding values for y. . Let's try a simple one first ... assign x to = 0. Then the x term goes to zero and you are left with y = -1. . Make your x-y table have two columns. Head the first column (left column) "When x equals", and head the second column (right column) "Then y equals". . Our first entry is 0 in the left column and just to the right of it -1 in the right hand column and draw a line under these entries. . Let x = 5. Then y becomes which equals . So this time in the left column enter 5 and adjacent to it in the right column enter 14. . One last one. Let x = 10. Then y becomes which equals . So this time enter 10 in the left column and enter 29 in the adjacent right column. Draw a line under these two entries and horizontally across the two columns of the table. . You now should do some additional values. Try some negative values for x and calculate the corresponding values for y. Enter the x values you decide to use and list them vertically in the left column. Across from each one that you enter, give the corresponding y-value in the right hand column. Then draw an underline after each x and y entry. . Hope this helps you with understanding how x-y tables are developed.
