Passes through

#### Explanation:

Basically, this is a straight line in the form

Our gradient m is 4 which is positive, so our straight line slopes to the right

You need to solve the equation to see where your line crosses the x and y axis.

- To find y is easy

Let#x=0#

so#y=4(0)-1#

Giving us#y=-1#

So now we know our graph passes through#y=-1# - For x we use a similar process

Let#y=0#

So we get#4x-1=0#

Hence,#x=1/4#

So now we know our graph passes through
