    Finite Math

    Does anyone know how to do this?
    If (x,y) is a point on the graph of the line and:
    delta X =1
    delta X =2
    delta X=5

    find delta Y.
    y=5x+1

    y=5x+1

    You would plug in the numbers for x to solve for y.

    If delta x=1, then y=5(1)+1

    y=5+1=6

    If delta x=2, then y=5(2)+1

    y=10+1=11

    If delta x=5, then y=5(5)+1

    y=25+1=26

    This would make the points on the graph (1,6), (2,11), and (5,26).
