# Graphing Lines

TLDRThis tutorial demonstrates how to graph the line represented by the equation y = 2x + 1. It begins by finding XY pairs that satisfy the equation, such as (1, 3) and (2, 5), and then plotting these points on a graph. The process includes handling positive and negative values, with examples like (-1, -1) and (0, 1). The video concludes by connecting these points with a line and extending it with arrows to show its infinite nature, effectively graphing y = 2x + 1.

### Takeaways

- 📚 To graph a line, you need to find XY pairs that satisfy the equation and then plot those points.
- 🔍 For the equation y = 2x + 1, plugging in x = 1 gives the point (1, 3).
- 📌 Starting at the origin, move right for positive x values and up for positive y values to plot points.
- ✏️ When x = 2, the corresponding y value is 5, leading to the point (2, 5).
- 🔢 Negative x values indicate movement to the left from the origin, and negative y values indicate downward movement.
- 📈 For x = -1, the point is (-1, -1), showing how to handle negative values in graphing.
- 📉 The point (0, 1) is obtained when x = 0, illustrating the graphing process for zero values.
- 🔄 The process is repeated for different x values, such as x = -3, resulting in the point (-3, -5).
- 📊 Plotting multiple points ensures the accuracy of the line's graph, as all points should align.
- ➡️ Drawing a line through the plotted points and extending it with arrows indicates the line's infinite nature.

### Q & A

### What is the first step in graphing a line?

-The first step in graphing a line is to find XY pairs that satisfy the equation of the line.

### How do you find a point on the line y = 2x + 1 when x = 1?

-When x = 1, you substitute x into the equation to get y = 2(1) + 1, which equals 3. So the point is (1, 3).

### What is the direction to move from the origin if the x value is positive?

-If the x value is positive, you move to the right from the origin.

### How do you determine the direction to move up or down from the origin based on the y value?

-If the y value is positive, you move up from the origin, and if it's negative, you move down.

### What point do you get when x = 2 in the equation y = 2x + 1?

-When x = 2, the point is (2, 5) because substituting x into the equation gives y = 2(2) + 1 = 5.

### How do you plot a point with negative x values on the graph?

-For negative x values, you move to the left from the origin, and for the y value, you move up if it's positive or down if it's negative.

### What is the y value when x = -1 in the equation y = 2x + 1?

-When x = -1, the y value is -1 because substituting x into the equation gives y = 2(-1) + 1 = -1.

### How do you find the point when x = 0 in the equation y = 2x + 1?

-When x = 0, the point is (0, 1) because substituting x into the equation gives y = 2(0) + 1 = 1.

### What point corresponds to x = -3 in the equation y = 2x + 1?

-When x = -3, the point is (-3, -5) because substituting x into the equation gives y = 2(-3) + 1 = -5.

### How do you ensure all the plotted points are on the same line?

-By substituting different x values into the equation and plotting the resulting points, you can ensure they are on the same line by drawing a line through them.

### Why are arrows drawn on both sides of the graphed line?

-Arrows are drawn on both sides of the graphed line to indicate that the line extends infinitely in both directions.

### Outlines

### 📈 Graphing a Linear Equation

The paragraph demonstrates how to graph the linear equation y = 2x + 1. It starts by explaining the process of finding XY pairs that satisfy the equation. The narrator chooses specific values for x (1, 2, -1, 0, -3) and calculates the corresponding y values by substituting these values into the equation. For each value of x, the narrator describes how to move from the origin based on the sign and magnitude of x and y to plot the points on the graph. The points are then connected to form a line, and arrows are drawn on both sides of the line to indicate its infinite nature, successfully graphing the equation.
