Question

# Graph the equation

Hint:

## The correct answer is: After plotting the points, we join them with a line to get the graph of the equation.

### Step by step solution:The given equation isY = -0.5xFirst we make a table of points satisfying the equation.Putting x = 0 in the above equation, we will get, y = 0Similarly, putting x = 1, in the above equation, we get y = -0.5Continuing this way, we haveFor x = -1, we get y = 0.5For x = 2, we get y = -1For x = -2, we get y = 1Making a table of all these points, we haveNow, we plot these points on the graphAfter plotting the points, we join them with a line to get the graph of the equation.

We can find the tabular values for any points of x and then plot them on the graph. But we usually choose values for which calculating y is easier. This makes plotting the graph simpler. We can also find the values by putting different values of y in the equation to get different values for x. Either way, we need points satisfying the equation to plot its graph.
