    look at the graph and find the y coordinate of the point where \(x=2\) that is all

    all you need s to understand the graph |dw:1438223727284:dw| first quadrant where both x and y values are positive 2nd quadrant where x is negative and y is positive 3rd quadrant where x and y are negative 4th quadrant where x is positive and y is negative you need to find y value when x=2 (as `misty1212 said) draw a line where x=2 so you can easily find y value

    |dw:1438224140473:dw| like in this example when x = 1 y = -2

    I do understand that, however I just do not know how to estimate the provided numbers for the answer. I understand i find where x hits 2 in graph 1, but where are the answers 0.25, and 0.5 (for example) coming from??

    |dw:1438263128412:dw| that's a good question you can draw horizontal line , now at what point blue(horizontal line ) cross y-axis so .5 is half of 1 right so is it going in the middle of one or passes through .25 careful about signs >.>
