# Linear Graph Calculator

A linear graph is the graphical representation of a straight line which is represented by the equation of the form **'y = mx+c'**.

# What Is a Linear Graph Calculator?

'Cuemath's Online Linear Graph alculator' is a free online tool that sketches the linear graph passing through two points within a few seconds.

## How to Use the Linear Graph Calculator?

Follow the steps mentioned below to sketch the linear graph of the line passing through two points.

**Step 1**- Enter the values of x1, x2, y1, y2.**Step 2**- Click on "**Draw**" to sketch the linear graph passing through those points.**Step 3**- Click on "**Reset**" to clear the fields and enter the new points.

## How to Draw a Linear Graph?

Consider the following steps to plot a linear graph:

- Select the two points (x1,y1), (x2, y2) to draw the linear graph.
- Mark the two points on the graph by using their
**x**and**y**coordinates. - Then use a ruler to join the two points with a line passing through those points.

The equation of the line can be found by substituting both the points in the linear equation y = mx+c. The slope 'm' and the vertical intercept 'c' can be found using both the equations you get from the two points.

Let's learn through an example how to sketch a linear graph.

**Solved Example :**

Sketch a linear graph passing through points A(1,2) and B(2,3).

**Solution :**

In the first step, we have to mark the two points A and B on the graph paper. To mark point A, travel 1 unit towards the positive **x**-axis from the origin (0,0) then 2 units upward. To mark point B, travel 2 units towards the positive **x**-axis from the origin (0,0) then 3 units upward.

After marking the two points A and B use a ruler and sketch the line passing through the two points.

Now, use linear graph calculator and sketch the graph of the following points.

1) (2,3), (3,4)

2) (5,6), (7,2)
