I just need to show the work from getting the equation 7x + 3y = 42 into slope- intercept form. Then I need the step by step work for graphing it in intercepts form.

Your equation is perfect for finding intercepts.

let x=0 , (put your little finger over the 7x term), then y = 14

let y = 0, ( put your little finger over the 3y term), then x = 6

so you have 2 nice points, (0,14) and (6,0)

to change to slope-yintercept form

3y = -7x + 42

y = (-7/3)x + 14

1. 7X + 3Y = 42.

Convert the std form Eq to the slope-interceptform:

7X + 3Y = 42,

3Y = -7X + 42,

Y = -7/3X + 14, (Y = mx + b).

Our 1st point will be at the Y-int

where X is always 0.

P1(0 , 14).

Since our slope is neg. DECREASE

b by 7:

y = 14 - 7 = 7.

X = 3 = The denominator of the slope.

P2(3 , 7).

GRAPH: P1(0 , 14) , P2(3 , 7)

2. 7X + 3Y = 42

At the y-int., X = 0.

Calculate Y:

7(0) + 3Y = 42

3Y = 42

Y = 14.

P1(0 , 14).

At the X-INT, Y = 0.

Calculate X:

7X + 3(0) = 42,

7X = 42,

X = 6.

P2(6 , 0).

GRAPH: P1(0 , 14) , P2(6 , 0).
