 Question 273601: How do I properly graph this equation on algebra.com? x-4y=-8 I know that rise=2 run=8 and slope=1/4 My original task was to find the rise, run, and slope and then write in standard form after looking at a graph. that had a line on it. I understand that Ax+By=C I don't quite understand what Ax is, Bx, or C. The original problem didn't have the standard form answer of x-4y=-8, that was in the back of my text book. I have included what I thought was the correct graph, but all it did was draw a horizontal line. So, if you can show me what I am missing in the computer formula I would appreciate it.
