Connecting Coordinate Points

There are multiple ways to connect points in a line depending on the style and substance you're looking for. 

1.) Using a Table to Connect Coordinate Points

When creating a table in Desmos, points can be connected by clicking and long-holding the icon next to the dependent column header. Choose from two different styles. This is also a great way to graph shapes in the calculator.

 

2.) Using Linear Regression to Connect Points

Points that display a linear pattern can be connected with an extended line by running a linear regression on the table data.

    This graph I created can help with using the distance( ) function on Desmos.

    Try it out, it may help.

    To actually make a line graph click the gear button or edit list and then click on the colored circles to pick. I'm not sure why, but the description above didn't work for me.

    This was not helpful at all and I still have no idea how to make a line graph, this is very upsetting because I need to complete this assignment for school and now I am going to fail because I am dumb and I thought your retarded ass website would help me succeed for once but it did not, I am now going to leave a horrible yelp review on Desmos and you should be concerned about that because that will damage your image. Please fix you dumb ass website so that I, Tyler can make my god damn line graph in peace. Please and Thank you. - Tyler

    Have you tried looking at the settings of the table? It may not be in line mode.

    hold the button when selecting it not just clicking.

    Nah man, I don't think one negative review's gonna damage their image.

    This article isn't about making line graphs; it's about connecting coordinate points. If you want to make line graphs using functions, you may want to see this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEIOdi2R4fE 

    "retarded ass website": I don't think it is. It's pretty damn good and pretty damn powerful if you know how to use it. Apparently, you don't, and instead of seeking help professionally, you've decided to be a jerk about it.

    It's like not knowing how to add two numbers on a calculator and then saying that the calculator is retarded because it can't help you with addition.

    Yeah, I get that this comment is a year old. Hopefully you've changed.

    You'd be surprised at how stupid people can be, but that's okay because we all go through that phase. Subscribe to me on YouTube and don't forget to use code "Calit" in the Fortnite Item Shop. Peace

    This really does not help. I've done it once before a long time ago, but I forgot how. There is a really easy way that I don't remember. I just want to connect two points, is that really too much to ask?
