graph the equation by plotting three points x -4y=-18

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

From this equation you can find infinite number of points. Do so find plugging in 0,1,-1 for x and looking for y

i dont get this?

x - 4y=18

OpenStudy (anonymous):

its supposed to be x - 4y=-18

y intercept...y=18/4 x intercept...x=18 its a straight line with a gradient of 1/4 so its an increasing straight line

OpenStudy (anonymous):

what?....... y =18,4

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

its supposed to be 3 points

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

the only thing you can get from the graph is gradient and intercepts

oh okhay i dont know what gradients mean

to get 3 points do as follws: first put x=2 and u get 2 -4y = -18 -4y = -18 -2 y = -20/-4 y = 5 so first point is (x,y) = (2,5)

Slope

first put x= -2 and u get -2 -4y = -18 -4y = -18 +2 y = -16/-4 y = 4 so second point is (x,y) = (-2,4)

okhay what are the next 2 points?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

lol, girlie, you dont know what a gradient is?, OMG, thats suprising

OpenStudy (anonymous):

wow it surprised me too.

finallyput x= -6 and u get -6 -4y = -18 -4y = -18 + 6 y = -12/-4 y = 3 so third point is (x,y) = (-6,3) Now plot these three points and join them with a line to get the required graph of the equation

whenever they ask you to plot by taking three points follows this procedure...

@einstien ---- All fingers are not alike and no two minds are alike. Can u sing like MJ or dance as good as MJ Can u play tennis like Roger or Nadal?? Each of us has our own pace of learning as long as we keep trying and improving, it is okay..... PS : You seem to have problems with spellings!!! Its Einstein and not eistein !!

you know great mathematicians and scientists like me dont care about the grammar but care about the figures instead, sorry.

ok i wil give every one a medal

I think u hv a long way before u can b called "great mathematician and scientist". win a Nobel Prize for something that u hv done and i will bow before u !! Being able to do successfully something that others have developed is no genius !!!
