Graph linear functions EXAMPLE 1 Graph the equation. Compare the graph with the graph of y = x . a . y = 2 x b . y = x + 3 SOLUTION a . The graphs of y = 2 x and y = x both have a y - intercept of 0 , but the graph of y = 2 x has a slope of 2 instead of 1.

Graph an equation in slope-intercept form EXAMPLE 2 Graph y = – x – 1 . 2 3 SOLUTION The equation is already in slope-intercept form. STEP 1 Identify the y -intercept. The y- intercept is – 1, so plot the point (0, – 1) where the line crosses the y- axis. STEP 2
