In order to graph we only need to plug in two points to draw the line
So lets plug in some points
Plug in x=8
Multiply
Add
Reduce
So here's one point (8,4)
Now lets find another point
Plug in x=4
Multiply
Add
Reduce
So here's another point (4,1). Add this to our graph
Now draw a line through these points
So this is the graph of through the points (8,4) and (4,1)
So from the graph we can see that the slope is (which tells us that in order to go from point to point we have to start at one point and go up 3 units and to the right 4 units to get to the next point) the yintercept is (0,)and the xintercept is (,0) ,or (,0)
We could graph this equation another way. Since this tells us that the yintercept (the point where the graph intersects with the yaxis) is (0,).
So we have one point (0,)
Now since the slope is , this means that in order to go from point to point we can use the slope to do so. So starting at (0,), we can go up 3 units
and to the right 4 units to get to our next point
Now draw a line through those points to graph
So this is the graph of through the points (0,2) and (4,5)
