# How do you graph the equation #y=3x#?

##### 2 Answers

Start at (0,0) move one place to the right and three places up, make a point, at (1,3) repeat and make another point at (2,6). Connect the points.

#### Explanation:

The y intercept form is

In this equation the m or slope is

In this equation the b or y intercept is 0

the b or y intercept is 0 ( b think beginning ) so start at ( 0,0)

The slope m is the angle of the line think mountain slope.

So starting at ( 0,0) the b or beginning move over 1 and up 3

because the slope is 3 =

Repeat this process at least twice, so that there are three points to connect to make a line.

See the explanation.

#### Explanation:

Graph:

This equation is in slope intercept form, and can be rewritten as:

Determine a few points on the line by choosing values for

Plot the points and draw a straight line through them.
