2x - 3y  =  -6

 

a.     To find the  x  intercept, plug in  0  for  y  and solve for  x  .

 

2x - 3(0)  =  -6

 

2x - 0  =  -6

 

2x  =  -6            Divide both sides of the equation by  2 .

 

x  =  -3              The  x  intercept is  -3 .

 

 

b.     To find the  y  intercept, plug in  0  for  x  and solve for  y .

 

2(0) - 3y  =  -6        Can you finish it?

 

 

c.     To graph the line, plot the  x  intercept and the  y  intercept, then draw a line through them.
