Draw the graph y=3x -1
1) Pick 3 points and plot their values - the resulting line will go through all of them and be the right line

f(x) = 3x-1

f(-1) = -4
f(0) = -1
f(1) = 2

2) Start with f(0) and find that [f(0) = -1]. From there go up 3 for every 1 to the right and down 3 for every one to the left

3. ## Thanks

Thanks for the quick reply I am still totally lost on these graphs for some reason when i normally get most things straight away.
