Graphing an equation y = m(x) - b
When you are graphing the equation y = mx + b (or - b, it doesn’t matter), you need to first find one of the intercepts. It is easiest to find the y intercept because the equation is set up to show it clearly. To find the y intercept, you set x to 0, which will result in y = b. B is always the y intercept (if it is positive, it is above the x axis, if it...
