# How do you graph by plotting points for f(x)=5x-8?

Generate values of

then plot your points

Since the equation is linear only 2 points are needed, but several will help ensure accuracy.

To graph the function f(x) = 5x - 8 by plotting points, you would choose several values of x, plug them into the equation to find the corresponding values of f(x), and then plot those points on a coordinate plane. After plotting multiple points, you can connect them with a straight line to create the graph of the function.

To graph the function f(x) = 5x - 8 by plotting points:

- Choose several values for x.
- Calculate the corresponding values for f(x) using the equation f(x) = 5x - 8.
- Plot the points (x, f(x)) on the coordinate plane.
- Connect the points to form a straight line.

For example, choosing x values of -2, 0, and 2:

When x = -2, f(x) = 5(-2) - 8 = -18. When x = 0, f(x) = 5(0) - 8 = -8. When x = 2, f(x) = 5(2) - 8 = 2.

Plot the points (-2, -18), (0, -8), and (2, 2) on the coordinate plane. Then, connect these points with a straight line.
