    Hi andyboy179,

    What you have there is the graph of a straight line.

    y=2x+8 is in slope-intercept form y=mx+b.

    The y-intercept is 8. So graph (0, 8).

    The slope is 2. So, from (0, 8) move up 2 units and right 1 unit to plot your second point at (1, 10).

    Connect the two points with a straight line and extend the line past the two plotted points (the line is infintely long).
