    Are you familiar with the equation y=mx+b ?

    Well my first hint would be to describe how you would make that equation look like y=mx+b So solve for y and then post back your answer and i'll let you know if you're correct. we can go from there.

    Oh no no. Solve the equation so you get y= something. I'll give you another hint. subtract 2x over.

    See you have to find using x and y intercept method: For finding x intercept Put y = 0 in the given equation can you do that?? And tell me what you got for x...?

    this wat i did First set x equal to zero so y equals to 14. Then set y equal to zero so 2x equals 14. Divide the 2 by 14 and 2x so you get x by itself. You are left with x equals to 7. Your coordinates are then (0,14) and (7,0).

    Draw on graph.. The vertical distance should be 14 And the horizontal should be 7..
