Equation: y=$\frac{3}{4}$x+2 The general form of a linear equation is y=mx+b where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept. In the equation above the y-intercept, b, is +2 so start by plotting the point (0,2). In the equation above the slope, m, is $\frac{3}{4}$ and since slope= $\frac{rise}{run}$ you go up 3 units and to the right 4 units from each point starting from the y-intercept to get the final graph.
