Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it will be easier to graph if you write the same equation in different form: 4y=8x y=2 x/2 it's a line  you'll need to identify only two points to graph, let's say x=1 (y=2) and... your choice. Finish it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(0,2) is correct, let's try your second choice: if x=8, y=2 8/2 = 24 = 2 your answer is wrong. it should be (8,2) for second point

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y=1/4x + 2 so if x=4 then y=1 x=0 then y = 2 x = 8 then y = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oups, you are right, I made a mistake in original eq... it should be: y= 2 x/4 so, (8,0) is CORRECT

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0By the way. The graph is a straihgt line going down (the minus of the x) and cutting the y axis in 2.
