Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well, if our equation is y = x^3, then all we need to do is do a few quick calculations and draw a few points if x = 0, then y = x^3 = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i don't get x ^ 3 = ? what is ^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1^ means exponent so y = x^3 = x*x*x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I presume that your equation looks like this? dw:1440016180277:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh, ok, then let's go with that if x = 0, then y = 3x = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well, when we want to graph a point, we need (x,y), right? y = 3x tells us how to find y when we have x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, y = 3(0) = 0 when x = 0 this gives us the point (0,0)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now, when x = 1, y = 3x = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right, and 3(1) = 3, correct? this gives us the point (1,3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now, let's put (0,0) and (1,3) on your graph:

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now we draw a straight line through the two points, and then we have our line.dw:1440016477564:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well, let's go from the top do you understand how to graph points?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for example, if I told you to put the point (3,5) on a graph, could you do it?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok, you understand that every point has an x and ycoordinate, correct? every point looks like this: (x,y) where x = a number and y = a number, with me so far?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok, now let's move on to turning an equation into a graph the problem gives you the equation y = 3x which means that we can pick any number to be x, and get a matching y value by multiplying 3*x so, if x = 0, then y = ?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right, y = 0 when x = 0 remember how we write a point? we can write x = 0 and y = 0 as (0,0) and graph this point

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1next, we can pick another x value, let's just go with x = 1 as an example when x = 1, y = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right, and 3 times 1 = ?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right, so y = 3 when x = 1 we can write this as (1,3). so we have two points now, (0,0) and (1,3). draw these two points on a graph, then draw a straight line through them, like so:

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1does that make a bit more sense now?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@theforgottendogs remember when we solved the equations? x = 0, y = 0 x = 1, y = 3 and we made the two points (0,0) and (1,3)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I just picked x = 0 and x = 1 because they were easy to calculate, you can pick any 2 x values you want
