# What Is The Difference Between Sketch And Draw?

It is important to know the difference between **Sketch A Graph** & **Draw A Graph**.

Sketch ==>

- On foolscap paper
- Best Representation of the graph
- Less time as it reflects only the general shape of the graph.

Draw ==>

- On graph paper
- Accurate representation of the graph
- More time needed as it usually involves more points on the graph
- Curve rule/french curve is usually required.

Example:

Sketch

What I will do :

- Find
*x*-intercept (i.e. set *y *= 0)

- Find
*y*-intercept (i.e. set *x *= 0) *y* = 1
- Put the 2 points on the axes I have drawn on foolscap, join the 2 points, label the line.

Draw

- Set up a table of 3 values of
*x* choosen randomly i.e *x* = -1 , 0, 1
- Find out values of
*y* for each value of *x* by substituting into the equation of the line.
- Plot the points on a graph paper accurately.
- Join the 3 points, label the line.
