Find the value of x when y is 9.

• algebra help -

I will assume you want
(-2,2) , (x,9) , and (4,20) to lie on the same straight line?

if so,
method I : find the equation of the line using the two known points, then sub in y=9

Method II : just set up a ratio ...
(x+2)/(9-2) = (4+2)/(20-2)
(x+2)/7 = 1/3
3x + 6 = 7
x = 1/3
