## SephI 3 years ago I don't get it. How would I solve it

1. SephI

2. Bhagyashree

before u can graph this equation get the equation in standard form: y=mx+b

3. mayankdevnani

first solve this equation y-3=2(x-4) y-3=2x-8 y=2x-5

4. SephI

I got 2x-5, I'm having trouble graphing...

5. mayankdevnani

@SephI now solve it

6. mayankdevnani

put the value of x=0 y=0-5=-5

7. mayankdevnani

1solution=(0,-5)

8. Bhagyashree

b is the y intercept

9. mayankdevnani

put the value of x=1 y=2-5 y=-3

10. mayankdevnani

2 solution=(1,-3)

11. mayankdevnani

@SephI there are may solutions

12. mayankdevnani

got it @SephI

13. Bhagyashree

so -5 is the y value when x is 0 then the slope is m which is 2 so go up 2 points from -5 go left 1 because your slope is really 2/1 that's you next point then draw a line through both points

14. SephI

No, no I don't. Putting different numbers in will give me different answers?

15. mayankdevnani

then you will get a straight line

16. mayankdevnani

am i wrong? @Bhagyashree

17. SephI

Okay, walk through step-by-step

18. mayankdevnani

you don't understand

19. Bhagyashree

you are not wrong @mayankdevnani it is just a different method

20. mayankdevnani

oh!! but it is right @SephI

21. Bhagyashree

wait let me explain in a different way

22. mayankdevnani

uw you can

23. mayankdevnani

there are infinitely solutions @SephI

24. SephI

Ok

25. SephI

@mayankdevnani , go on...

26. Bhagyashree

as what @mayankdevnani just said is right if u plug a value of x in an equation u get a value of y for that x value if u get 2 of those points they both belong to one equation that u want to graph so its not wrong u can also look at previous answer which is a different method of graphing

27. mayankdevnani

now put the value of x=5 y=10-5=5

28. mayankdevnani

2solution=(5,5)

29. mayankdevnani

now you understand @SephI

30. mayankdevnani

take the value of x=4 y=8-5=3

31. mayankdevnani

3solution=(4,3)

32. mayankdevnani

also (4,3) is in the graph as line pass through it

33. mayankdevnani

ok @SephI

34. mayankdevnani

@hartnn am i right?

35. hartnn

about what ? u have to graph the line, right ? find x and y intercepts, plot them, and just daw a staright line passing through them. To get x-intercept put y=0 in the equation to get y-intercept put x=0 in the equation i am too lazy to go through all the comments....
