I have the graphs, I just have questions. I don't understand how these graphs were formed. Please explain how this is done. Where do the lines intersect? Aren't there coordinates?

1. f(x)=6x
2. f(x)=3x - 2
3. f(x)=(1/2)x
4. f(x)= log2x.

1. f(x)=6x

( I will give a detailed explanation for the first problem. This will help you understand the other two as well. I will give shorter explanations to the other two problems. Highlighted phrase is important to understand)
You only need the general shape of the graph. So you will analyze the given function at extreme values of x to get the general appearance ...
