The graph of the equation $y=2x+4$ is a straight line with points $(0,4)$ and $(-2,0)$.

#### Work Step by Step

$$y=2x+4$$ To graph, get the intercepts by alternately setting the value of $x$ and $y$ to zero. If $x=0$ $y=2x+4$ $y=2(0)+4$ $y=4$ If $y=0$ $0=2x+4$ $-2x=4$ $x=-2$ Thus, you have points $(0,4)$ and $(-2,0)$.
