    Put various values of x like -1, -2, 0, 1, 5 and find corresponding values of y from the given equation Plot the point and get the graph

    You are trying to find point (X,Y) so for example if X = 0 (0,Y) what does Y=?

    Suppose you put x= 1 in the given eqn, you get y= 5(1) -5 = 5-5 = 0 So you get a point (1,0)

    Yes 3-4 point r more than enough then plot them and you will get the required graph

    Yes you can convert it to y = -4 + 1/2x Then put values for x and get values of y

    For a linear equation you really only need two points to graph it.
