d. x= -7, y= -2

2.
Find the x- and y- intercept of the line 2x + 3y = -18.
a. x-intercept is 18, y-intercept is 18
b. x-intercept is -6, y-intercept is 9.

1. They are both incorrect.

To find the x-intercept of the line
L : ax + by + c = 0
you would set y=0, (that is, where the line intersects the x-axis) and solve for x in :
ax + b(0) + c =0

To find the y-intercept, you would similarly set x=0, where L intersects the y-axis, and solve for y:
a(0) + by + c =0

Try the problems using the above methods and post your answers for checking if you wish.
