    when you solve for x and y intercepts you substitute the other variable with 0 so if you were to solve for x you would replace y with 0 and if you were to solve for y you would replace x with 0

    when x is 0 we have -y-6 = 0 or y = -6 so the y inttercept at (0,-6) when y = 0 we have 2x-6 = 0or x = 3 so the x intercept is (3,0)

    note: y intercept is when x is zero and x intercept is when y is 0

    a little too late for that... I always work the problem out myself anyways though

    look think of what are you trying to get first and then go about learning the mechanical side of it.

    its fine, if peole dont want to learn(not saying you dont) we cant force them to. I understnad what your saying, and if they ask the same sort of question over and over then Im with you. but this is not the case so far here.

    i actually worked the problem out instead of just writing what he said so I can understand how he got his answer

    thank you. i think people will be better off if they truly understand whats happing behind the equation than simply to solve it .
