Short Answer

Write the equation in function form. Then graph the equation.


The function form of the equation is y=3x-5.

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step 1. Given information.

The given equation is 3x-y=5.

Step 2. Calculation.

To write the given equation in function form, we need to convert our equation in slope-intercept form y=mx+b as:

3xy=5Given equation3x3xy=53xSubtracting 3x from both sidesy=3x+5y(1)=1(3x5)Multiplying both sides by 1y=3x5

Therefore, the function form of our given equation would be 3x-y=5.

We can see that the slope of our given equation is 3 and the y-intercept is 0,-5.

Upon graphing our given equation, we will get our required graph as shown below:

Step 3. Conclusion.

The above graph is the required graph.
