Identify the correct x intercept and y intercept of the equation 2x  3y = 18.
x intercept = (9, 0); y intercept = (0, 6)
x intercept = (6, 0); y intercept = (0, 9)
x intercept = (9, 0); y intercept = (0, 6)
x intercept = (6, 0); y intercept = (0, 9)

To find the x intercept, set y=0 and solve for x. To find the y intercept, set x=0 and solve for y. Give this a try and let me know if you are still struggling!

Alright, that's fine. So if you let y=0, you are left with: $$2x  3(0) = 18 \ \ \ \ \ \ \text{we know 3(0)=0, so} \\ \Rightarrow 2x = 18 \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \text{divide by 2,} \\ \Rightarrow x = 9$$ Thus your xintercept is the point (9,0). Try the same thing with the yintercept and you'll find that to be (0,6). Good luck!
