Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Or you could just... you know... plug in two points and use a ruler?!?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thank you I give it a try I am just having a hard time understanding how to plot or knowing when to when i look at a problem

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, well pick an x that's nice (say 0). Then plug it in and find out what y is.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I did not know should I replace x with a 0?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(x,y) = (0,3). Then do the same thing for y (plug in a 0) and find a second point

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Kool thank you so my answer is x=0,3 and y= 3,0?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When you plug in a 0 for x you get y = 3 that's correct. That gives you the point (x,y) = (0,3). If you plug in a 0 for y you have this equation: \[0 = (62x)/3\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Which gives you \[x=3\] sorry, missread it. Ok, so now you have a second point (x,y) = (3,0)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So you draw a Cartesian grid and draw those two points, then connect them with a straight line. That line represents all the x,y pairs that are solutions to the equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You are so smart, that actually makes sense but what about y=5x1 do i still use 0?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would I go up 5 and down 1??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you are just being asked to graph it you can plug anything you want in for x or y (but not both!) then solve for the one you didn't plug in and you will have a point on the graph.
