Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You can give any arbitrary number to "x" and solve for "y", for at least two points on the graph, if you join the points you'll obtain the graph of that line.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I can use 5 for x right? But how would i go about solving y.. Thank you btw I'm sorry im so confused haha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Say for instance, We consider x=5, then: \[5(5)+y=3\] Now, we just operate: \[25+y=3\] \[y=28\] So, therefore, the point "w", as we can call it, belongs in the line whose equation is given, if you represent this point on the cartesian plane, and repeat the process for another value of "x", then join the points, you'll obtain the graph of the line. \[w(5,28)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes it does, I have 2 answer choices that could work i just need to figure out if its negative or positive

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The slope is positive because the 5 in 5x is positive.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if u have something like this ax+by=c then just divide all over by c \[\frac{ ax }{ c }+\frac{ by }{ c }=\frac{ c }{ c }\]\[\frac{ x }{ \frac{ c}{ a }}+ \frac{ y }{ \frac{ c }{ b } }=1\] calculate c/a and c/b and (c/a, 0)=point where the graph cuts x axis (0,c/b)=point where graph cuts y axis so basically just identify a,b,c and then find the points then join them and thats ur graph

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well thr best way was like what owl said u jst take some random value of x and get y and plot that point then u take another random value of x and put it in equation nd get y and pot this point and then join these 2 points
