5. Find the x and y intercepts of each linear equation. Be sure to write your answers as ordered pairs.

y = 3x - 6
6y = -x + 2


On the second equation, change it to read y= ...,. Divide both sides of that equation by 6 to get the desired result.


how??


The first one has slope m=3 and y intercept of -6.
To find the x intercept set y=0 and solve for x to get
0 = 3x - 6 or 6=3x and x=2

The second equation is
6y=-x+2
Divide both sides by 6 to get
y = (-1/6)x + 1/3
The y intercept is 1/3
To find the x intercept set y=0 and solve for x
0=(-1/6)x + 1/3 or
-1/3 = (-1/6)x multiply both sides by -6 to get
-6 * -1/3 = x or x=2
