@bhakti Hi, $$\huge \color{red}{\text{Welcome to Open Study}}\ddot\smile$$ Can u plz post the entire question ? what needs to be done with 4x+18 = 2y ??

3. hartnn

To get x-intercept put y=0 in the equation to get y-intercept put x=0 in the equation

4. hartnn

so tell me what intercepts u get ?

5. bhakti

i don't get it see 0=4x+18 what do i do now

6. hartnn

right, now find x from that 0=4x+18 subtract 18 from both sides, what u get ?

7. bhakti

-4.5 in one side but what do i do on the other one

8. hartnn

thats correct, your x-intercept is (-4.5,0) now find y-intercept. 18=2y y=... ?

9. bhakti

10. bhakti

how do i graph it

11. hartnn

correct, so y-intercept is (0,9) now can u plot both the intercepts ? can u plot (-4.5,0) and (0,9) ?

12. hartnn

if you are able to plot both points, then just join them with straight line and you have graphed your equation....
