We now learn how to draw a line, given its line equation.
By the end of this section we'll know how to show, for example, that the line with equation: \[y = x-4\] is the line shown here:
We start by learning the method, which consists of finding two points through which the line passes.
We then illustrate this technique with a tutorial.
Finally we consolidate what we have learnt by working through some exercise questions, each of which has both an answer key as well as a detailed video solution.
Given a line equation \(y = mx + c\), to draw the line we need two points through which the line passes.
Note: This method is best illustrated with an example. Watch the tutorial, below, in which we see how this method works.
In the following tutorial we learn how to draw a line, given its equation, by finding both its \(y\)-intercept and its \(x\)-intercept.
We learn the method by drawing the line with equation: \[y = 2x - 6\]
