Follow the following steps.
1:On the coordinate axes , let x-axes denote the no. of hours ie work
and y axes the  wages.
 2:plot the graph  for the equation y =4x +3, by taking thye following points.(obtained by substituting random values of x and getting the corresponding values of y.
3: This will a straight line and the required graph.
4:From x=4 , draw a perpendicular intersecting the graph  at a point say P.
5: The Y co-ordinate of the point is the required wages.
this should be 19.
