find the x and y intercepts and graph the equation plotting the intercepts 6x-7y=-42

  • algebra -

    you plug in zero for x and get 6(0)-7y=-42
    and then you get-7y=-42 which is y=6. and then you plug in zero for y and get 6x-7(0)=-42
    and then you get 6x=-42 which is x=-7. so your points are (-7,6) and then graph them.

  • algebra -

    Oh and then you put your equation in slope intercept form y=mx+b. and get -7y=-6x-42 and divide by 7. so your line will be y=6/7x +6.

    Here's the question I'm having trouble with: Tell how you would identify the intercepts for the graph of the equation: 3x + 6y = 18 I'm not exactly sure how you would find the intercepts from this equation. Thanks!

    Did I do these probelms correctly? Find the intercepts 1. y^2 = x^2 - 4x y^2 = x(x - 4) Y intercepts y^2 = 0(0 - 4) (0,0) x intercepts 0 = x(x - 4) 0 = x - 4 4 = x (4,0) 2. y = (x (x + 3))/(3x + 1)^2 y intercetps y = (0(0 + 3))/(3(0)
