Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(x,y) so; x=6, and y=9. The equation you have needs to be solved for y in order to find the slope and yintercept. 9x 2y =3 2y =9x +3 y = (9/2)x  (3/2) Your yintercept is the value for "y" when "x=0": (3/2) The slope of the line is whatever is sitting next to the "x"; which in this case is (9/2) Does (x=6, y=9) make a true statement tho: 9(6) 2(9) = 3? 54 + 18 = 3? False. So your given value (6,9) are not a solution.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The information you are given suggests that you are wanting to determine if (6,9) is a solution to the equation (9x 2y =3). So just plug in (x=6, y=9) and see if it is a true statement....
