    set the 2 equations equal and solve for x 3x+2 = -1/4x +1

    So basically just put the numbers in for x, and whichever equation equals the same for both, is my answer?

    I tried plugging in all the numbers for x and none of them equal the same.. or am I doing the wrong thing for this problem? I don't get it.

    Try plugging in x = -0.3 again 3(-.3) +2 = ? -1/4(-.3) +1 = ?

    3(-.3)+2 = 1.7 -1/4(-.3)+1 = 0.7

    you must solve it graphically so you only need to find the point of intersection between the two lines y = 3x + 2 & y = -1/4 x + 1 from the graph then the solution is (-0.3, 1.1)
