    Graph problem

    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 \frac{3x}{1}

    I attached some links with some steps to give you a visual perspective
