 Question 127913: graph y=1.5xFound 2 solutions by jim_thompson5910, stanbon:Answer by jim_thompson5910(28595)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Start with the given equation Convert 1.5 to Looking at we can see that the equation is in slope-intercept form where the slope is and the y-intercept is note: really looks like 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 3 and the run is 2. This means that to go from point to point, we can go up 3 and over 2 So starting at , go up 3 units and to the right 2 units 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 Answer by stanbon(57361)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!graph y=1.5x ----------------------------- y = (3/2)x Plot two points: If x = 0, y = 0 If x = 2, y = 3 ----------------- Plot the points: (0,0) and (2,3) and draw a line thru them. ------------------------------ ========================================== Cheers, Stan H.
