Homework Statement
I am not sure how to graph the function
f(x)=(x+p)+q
Homework Equations
The Attempt at a Solution
When x=0 y=p+q
if y=0 x=-q-p ???
what shape would this give??[/B]
f(x) = (x + p) + q can also be written as f(x) = x + (p + q)Homework Statement

f(x) = (x + p) + q can also be written as f(x) = x + (p + q)
No as p and q are both constants, let:
p + q = c
Sp, we get f(x) = x + c
This is similar to the equation y = mx + c. What does this equation stand for?
This is nothing more than a straight line whose slope is 1 and whose y-intercept is p + q.lola2000 said:f(x)=(x+p)+q
Yes!So it will just be a straight line upwards with a gradient of 1 and y intercept of p+q?
