Watch this video, take notes, and graph the line shown on graph paper. This is also an example of graphing a linear equation written in the form *y = mx + b*, but the focus is on the fact that the coefficient in front of *x* is a fraction. Because we can pick any values of x to generate the ordered pairs for plotting, it is convenient to choose the ones that will produce integer values of *y*, which are easier to graph.
