For example: (1,7),(2,10),(3,13),(4,16),,,,(x,3x+4) Note; As x increases by 1, y increases by 3. ===================== Cheers, Stan H. Answer by solver91311(16868)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Make two columns, one labeled and the other labeled (or whatever two variables your equation uses). Pick a value for . Write that value in the column. Substitute that value into the equation in place of and then do the arithmetic to determine the resulting value of . Write this result in the column. Repeat as often as you like, although for a linear equation, you really only need to do it twice for any given equation. That is because two points uniquely determine a line (remember geometry?) Hint: Save yourself from inconvenient (read error-prone) arithmetic. When picking values for , small integers generally work the best. If the coefficient on is a fraction, pick the denominator or an integer multiple of it as a replacement for . John
