Question

# For the following functions find out the slope of the graph and the intercept. Then sketch the graph for values of $x$ between $-10$ and 10 .$y=2 x+4$

Solution

Verified
Step 1
1 of 2

The slope of the function can be found from the general form of the linear equation which states

$y=mx+b$

where $m$ is the slope of the function and $b$ is a $y$-intercept. The slope of the graph is

$m=-2$

and the intercept is

$b=4$
