 Question 120734: How do you graph y = 6/5x-4?Answer by jim_thompson5910(29613)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!In order to graph this equation, we only need two points to create a straight line So let's pick simple values to plug into x Start with the given equation Plug in (you can start with any number, but zero is the easiest number to work with) Multiply Subtract So when , the value of y is . This means we have the first point (0,-4) -------------Now let's find another point------------ Start with the given equation Plug in (since the denominator is 5, choosing the value of 5 makes the fraction go away) Multiply Reduce Subtract So when , the value of y is . This means we have the second point (5,2) So we have the two points (0,-4) and (5,2) Now plot these two points on a coordinate system Now draw a straight line through them. This line is the graph of
