In this section, we learn how to graph a linear equation in two variables. In future lessons, we will find quicker and more efficient ways to perform this function. For now, we will start by creating a table of ordered pair solutions for our given linear equation in two variables. We then plot those ordered pairs on the coordinate plane and draw a line connecting the points. Additionally, we will learn about the x and y intercepts. The x - intercept is the spot where the graph crosses the x - axis. The y - intercept is the spot where the graph crosses the y - axis. Lastly, we will learn about two special case scenarios: horizontal and vertical lines.
