MathIsPower4U: James Sousa's "Graph a Linear Equation Containing Fractions Using a Table of Values"

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.
