9-46.

Sketch an example of each type of graph described below. Homework Help ✎

linear and decreasing

non-linear and increasing

Graph a line with the formula *y = mx + b*, where *m* is negative.

Sketch a line on a graph that goes down as it goes right.

An example of a decreasing linear graph is shown with the equation *y* = −2*x* + 6

Graph a relationship where either *x* or *y* has an exponent greater than 1.

An equation in which *x* or *y* has an exponent greater than one will create a curve, rather than a line.

An example of an increasing, non-linear graph is shown with the curve with the equation *y*^{3} = *x*.
