## Inopeki 3 years ago Can someone give me an example in graphing linear equations so i can try?

1. meverett04

Just a question? Like please graph y = 3x + 1

2. Inopeki

So i can graph it, can you give me a few examples of what x can be

3. fewscrewsmissing

Take x from -10 to 10 in increments of 1.

4. Inopeki

What?

5. meverett04

Graph of y = 3x + 1 same as y = (3/1)x + 1 Start at 1 and place a dot then go up 3 and right 1 and place the second dot |dw:1325697610281:dw|

6. Inopeki

I think i get it, can you give me another example so i can try?

7. meverett04

y = (2/3)x - 3

8. meverett04

Start at?

9. Inopeki

-3?

10. meverett04

Yes and from there go?

11. Inopeki

Up to the left?

12. Inopeki

|dw:1325697781376:dw|

13. meverett04

they are both postive, so go up 2 and right 3 If you wanted to go left, then the equation would be y = (2/-3)x - 3

And upon his future death, meverett04 shall be canonized for his patience.

15. Inopeki

Oh, wait, ill try!

17. meverett04

Beautiful!

18. Inopeki

Fewscrewsmissing, im sorry, im trying!

19. Inopeki

Yay :D

20. fewscrewsmissing

Oh I didn't mean anything against you Inopeki, you're doing great. I just meant meverett04 is evidentally very patient to go through such steps one at a time =)

21. Inopeki

Oh :) Both meverett and TT are awesome teachers!

22. fewscrewsmissing

They certainly are!

Hey Luffy, how's studying going with you?

24. Inopeki

Well, im going through khanacademys library of algebra videos. I guess its going pretty good for me, how about you, Vendetta guy?

25. Mr.Math

I'm good. I have few things that I need to study, but I've been ignoring them. Hopefully, I won't be ignoring them for too long.

26. Inopeki

Ah, so you lack self discipline? I have no self discipline at all, its a wonder that ive come this far!
