**Hint**: The graph of the straight line so given can be found very simply. We will put different values of x in the equation and get the values of y. Then these pairs of x and y would be plotted in the form of points on a graph paper to get the exact idea. Then on joining the points we will get the image of the line so given.

**:**

__Complete step-by-step answer__Given is the equation of a line,

\[y = 2x - 4\]

This is of the form \[y = mx + C\]

In this slope intercept form m is the slope of the line.

Now we will take four different values of x and find the value of y for it.

If x=0

\[y = 2\left( 0 \right) - 4\]

On calculating we get,

\[y = - 4\]

So the first point is say \[A\left( {0, - 4} \right)\]

If x=1

\[y = 2\left( 1 \right) - 4\]

On calculating we get,

\[\begin{gathered}

y = 2 - 4 \\

y = - 2 \\

\end{gathered} \]

So the second point is say \[B\left( {1, - 2} \right)\]

If x=2

\[y = 2\left( 2 \right) - 4\]

On calculating we get,

\[\begin{gathered}

y = 4 - 4 \\

y = 0 \\

\end{gathered} \]

So third point is say \[C\left( {2,0} \right)\]

Now the last point.

If x=3

\[y = 2\left( 3 \right) - 4\]

On calculating we get,

\[\begin{gathered}

y = 6 - 4 \\

y = 2 \\

\end{gathered} \]

So the last point is say \[D\left( {3,2} \right)\]

Now we will plot these points and on joining them will give a straight line.

**Note**: Here note that there is no such restriction on how many points to take for graphing the line. We can take them as per our convenience. But those should be more than three so that we can at least see the line.

We can also proceed with the slope. It is the ratio of difference between the y coordinates of two points to x coordinates. And the positive slope indicates the line is increasing.
