For this equation: 3y + 6x = -24
a. Find the slope: ___________ b. Find the Y intercept: ______________
c. Graph the line.
3y + 6x = -24
Let's get this into slope-intercept form. Add 6x to both sides of the equation.
3y = 6x - 24 Now divide through by 3 .
y = 2x - 8
Now we can see that the slope is 2 and the y-intercept is -8 .
To graph it, plot the y-intercept: (0, -8)
and from there, plot a point that is 2 units up and 1 unit right: (1, -6) ,
then connect these points with a straight line.
