## Intermediate Algebra: Connecting Concepts through Application

$\bf{\text{Solution Outline:}}$ Use table of values to graph the given equation, $y=3x-8 .$ $\bf{\text{Solution Details:}}$ If $x=2,$ then \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} y=3x-8 \\\\ y=3(2)-8 \\\\ y=-2 .\end{array} If $x=3,$ then \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} y=3x-8 \\\\ y=3(3)-8 \\\\ y=1 .\end{array} If $x=4,$ then \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} y=3x-8 \\\\ y=3(4)-8 \\\\ y=4 .\end{array} The summary is shown in the table of values below. Use these values to get the graph of the given equation.
