Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if x = 1, then y = 2 leading us to another point (1,2) if x = 2, then y = 8 leading us to another point (2,8) etc etc you make a table of points and then plot those points. The more points, the more accurate the graph. Once you have all the points plotted, you draw a curve through all of the points
