Graph a Line

This page will help you draw the graph of a line. It assumes the basic equation of a line is

y=mx+b

where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept of the line.

Find a blank equation on the right (1-4) that best matches the equation you are working with, then click "Plot it!"

Fill in only one of these line forms:

  1. y = x +

  2. y = x (b = 0)

  3. y = (m = 0)

  4. x = (a line parallel to the y-axis)

Set how you want your plot to appear:
