TL;DR
Learn how to graph the function f(x) = 5x  4 stepbystep by sampling points from the domain.
Questions & Answers
Q: How is the function f(x) = 5x  4 graphed?
The function is graphed by sampling points from the domain and plotting them on a graph. The xvalues are chosen as negative 2, negative 1, 0, 1, and 2. The corresponding f(x) values are calculated and plotted on the yaxis.
Q: What is the general structure of the graph?
The graph of f(x) = 5x  4 is a straight line. By connecting the plotted points, a line is formed, indicating a linear relationship between x and f(x).
Q: How can any point from the domain be plotted on the graph?
Since the domain of the function f(x) = 5x  4 includes all real numbers, any xvalue can be chosen and its corresponding f(x) value can be calculated to plot the point on the graph.
Q: Are there any limitations to this method of graphing?
This method of graphing only provides a sample of points from the domain. It does not plot every single value. However, it is sufficient to understand the general shape and pattern of the graph.
