Graph the line with slope 2 passing through the point (-5,4)

• Math -

for a second point, you know y goes up 2 for every x. So add 6 to x, y should increase by 12. (1,16)

• Math -

I don't get it!!

• Math -

Here is another way to think about it.

You could write the equation of the line first in y = mx+b
You substitue:
4 = 2(-5) + b
4 +10 = b
14 = b

y = 2x + 14

Now let x = some values and solve for y and you will have the points you need to graph the line.
