## Diana97 3 years ago Using complete sentences, explain how to graph 2x + y = 14 using the x- and y-intercepts method.

1. agentc0re

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

2. Diana97

yes

3. agentc0re

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.

4. Diana97

i did it

5. Diana97

but i get 22/98

6. waterineyes

Can you what I am saying @Diana97

7. waterineyes

*do missing..

8. agentc0re

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

9. Diana97

@waterineyes wat

10. waterineyes

@agentc0re can you give me 5 minutes so that I can explain??

11. waterineyes

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...?

12. Diana97

2

13. waterineyes

you have 2x + y = 14 Here put y = 0 and find x..

14. Diana97

is x

15. waterineyes

No do it again and be careful..

16. waterineyes

Simply put y = 0..

17. waterineyes

Are you getting ?? If not getting then tell me fastly don't look here and there..

18. waterineyes

@Diana97 Are you listening to me or not???

19. Diana97

yes

20. Diana97

im doin it

21. waterineyes

Then find what I have told you.. Take your time and tell me the value of x after taking that much of your time..

22. Diana97

x represent 2'

23. waterineyes

How can you show me what you did...??

24. Diana97

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).

25. waterineyes

Then what are you doing above???

26. waterineyes

You have found that absolutely correct..

27. waterineyes

Now can you graph them or not???

28. Diana97

no i can't

29. waterineyes

|dw:1342978339442:dw| Getting how to graph??

30. waterineyes

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

thanks
