    confusing problem

    this problem's method is not listed in the book, and i cannot figure it out.
    we're supposed to find out the (x,y) setup of it by plugging in X's, plugging in 1-5 and recording the results.
    y=-3/4x+1

    Do you mean
    y(1) = -\frac{3}{4} \cdot 1 + 1 = -\frac{3}{4} + 1 = \frac{1}{4}

    giving you the point
    \left ( 1, \frac{1}{4} \right )
