How Do You Use the Graph of a Linear Equation to Solve a Word Problem?

Note:

Word problems are a great way to see math in the real world! In this tutorial, see how to figure out how long it will take for a rabbit population to go extinct. You'll also see how to set up a table and a graph to help find the answer!

You can't do algebra without working with variables, but variables can be confusing. If you've ever wondered what variables are, then this tutorial is for you!

To graph a linear equation, you could make a table of values to plot, but first you'll need to know how to make the table. Take a look at this tutorial! You'll see how to set up a table, choose appropriate x-values, plug those values into the equation, and simplify to get the respective y-values. This tutorial shows you how to set up a table of values for a linear equation!

Graphing an exponential function? No sweat! Create a table of values to give you ordered pairs. Then, plot those ordered pair on a coordinate plane and connect the points to make your graph! Follow along with this tutorial as it shows you all the steps.
