How to graph the line represented by: y=4/3x - 5 ?
The equation above is in slope intercept form. We may use its y-intercept and slope to graph since it is readily given.
The y-intercept is the constant -5. In (x,y) form, it is represented by the point (0,-5).
The slope of line is the number beside the variable x which is 4/3. Let's use this to determine the second point.
Since the slope is positive,the second point then is 4 units up and 3 units right from (0,5). So, it is (3,-1).
Note that for linear equation, we only need at least two points to graph.
So, connect the points with a straight line. Then, extend both ends.
Hence, the graph of `y=4/3x-5` is:
