I am asked to draw the graph of the linear function f(x)=3x-1. Can someone explain how I would go about doing this? Thanks so much.
MathFailure here are the steps to solve this problem
1. First draw a horizontal line at y=-1
2. Secondly go across 1 space and up 3; since 3x is really $\displaystyle \frac{3x}{1}$
I attached some links with some steps to give you a visual perspective
