Could someone explain how you graph a function? Giving an example would help me a lot, thank you.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol, thanks for replying, but it isn't smiling because smiling is too mainstream ^_^. Also, yes i am working on linear function

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1aww :( alright y =mx+b linear equation where m is slope (rise /run) and b is yintercept lets say we have y = 3x +4 where 3 is slope and b is yintercept

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to graph linear function we should start with the yintercept yintercept is a point where line intersect yaxis dw:1442182449985:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\huge\rm y=\color{ReD}{3}x+\color{blue}{4} ~~~~y=\color{Red}{m}x+\color{blue}{b}\] m= slope b= yintercept

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so start with yintercept which is 4 in this equation so draw a point at 4 dw:1442182609050:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now slope is =3 3 is same as 3/1 \[\huge\rm \frac{ 3 }{ 1 } =\frac{ rise }{ run }\] so i go up 3 unit and then right one dw:1442182704073:dw then just draw a line

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1my pleasure feel free to ask question if you didn't get it! btw hint if slope is negative then line should decrease (start from 3nd quadrant to 4th) if slope is positive then line should increase (Start from 3rd quadrant to 1st ) :=)
