Graph 3y4=11 by finding intercept(s)
How do you do this... Thanks

anonymous,
I'd love to help, but is there supposed to be an x somewhere in this equation?
like...
3y4x=11

Ok... I'll just assume that the equation is 3y4x=11.
So the yintercept of a line is where the graph intersects with the y axis. Any point on the y axis must have an x value of 0. To find the yintercept of this line, we have to plug in 0 for x and solve for y.
3y=11
y=11/3
The xintercept is where the line crosses the x axis. And the x intercept should have a y coordinate of 0. So we have to plug in 0 for y and solve for x.
4x=11
x= 11/4
So the x intercept= 11/3
y intercept= 11/4
I hope you understand this better. Peace.
