4-41.

Complete a table for the rule $y = 3x − 2$. 4-41 HW eTool (Desmos).

1. Draw a complete graph for this rule.

2. Is (−50, −152) a point on the graph? Explain how you know.

Complete the table in the eTool below to view the graph.

$\left. \begin{array} { | c | c | c | c | c | c | } \hline x & { - 2 } & { - 1 } & { 0 } & { 1 } & { 2 } \\ \hline y & { - 8 } & { - 5 } & { - 2 } & { 1 } & { 4 } \\ \hline \end{array} \right.$

To check if the point is on the graph, substitute the given $x$- and $y$- coordinates into the rule $y = 3x −2$.

If the values are equal, then the point is on the graph.
