Graph of $y=\frac{3}{2}x +\frac{1}{2} $

Work Step by Step

First we need to convert this point-slope form equation into standard form. Given: $y - 2=\frac{3}{2}(x-1) $ Distribute $\frac{3}{2}$ and then solve for y: $y =\frac{3}{2}x -\frac{3}{2} + 2 $ Simplify: $y=\frac{3}{2}x +\frac{1}{2} $ From this plot the y intercept $y = \frac{1}{2}$ Then use the slope to plot the remaining points to sketch the graph
