If you want an accurate graph on graph paper,plot two points on the line using the formula a fair distance form each other and join them with a ruler.
Actually, the slope here is 3 according to your equation. The y-intercept IS though as you stated. Whenever you have an equation of a line where x and y are dependent , you can find both an x-intercept and y-intercept which when connected and extended give the graph of the line.
With just the slope and the y-intercept, a graph is possible.
Most graphs that are in the form have no restrictions which is why none are usually stated.
If you plot the slope and the y-intercept, a rough graph can be sketched if you use the slope.
The slope is:
If you plot the y-intercept and use the slope and go up the amount of the rise, which in the case is three, and then to the right or left by the amount of the run, you can find the next point. If we call the new x-value a, and the new y-value b, then we could use the following to obtain a new point (a,b) using:
When you recalculate the above for every new point, you can graph the line without a data table.
