 Question 548764: y=2x+5Answer by jim_thompson5910(29613)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!I'm assuming you want to graph. Please post full instructions. Looking at we can see that the equation is in slope-intercept form where the slope is and the y-intercept is Since this tells us that the y-intercept is .Remember the y-intercept is the point where the graph intersects with the y-axis So we have one point Now since the slope is comprised of the "rise" over the "run" this means Also, because the slope is , this means: which shows us that the rise is 2 and the run is 1. This means that to go from point to point, we can go up 2 and over 1 So starting at , go up 2 units and to the right 1 unit to get to the next point Now draw a line through these points to graph So this is the graph of through the points and If you need more help, email me at jim_thompson5910@hotmail.com Also, please consider visiting my website: http://www.freewebs.com/jimthompson5910/home.html and making a donation.
