How do you graph y=1/5x?

You start at the origin (0,0), and then you count up 5 over to the right 1. Then you make a point. Keep doing this until you run out of graph or until you have five points. Whatever comes first. Then draw a line through the points with arrows on both ends. I hope that helps!!!!

You have described a line with slope 5. For slope 1/5, you must count right 5 for every 1 up.

What in the world is the previous member talking about?
Starting at the origin (0,0), you go up 1 and over to the right 5 (not up 5 and right 1). If what the previous member said was true, the function would be:
F(x) = 5x.
