To make the graph of a line, we choose some x values (usually one positive, one negative, and zero) to substitute in the equation one at a time. In this case, since we're going to have to multiply our chosen x numbers by 1/2, choose numbers that are multiples of 2, like -4, -8, 4, 6, 10, etc. This will make your y values integers. Graph the (x, y) coordinate pairs and they should be ruler straight. If they're not straight, double check your calculations.
