## lyzzy7 2 years ago Helppppp! draw a graph or just a line for this equation please? i cant figure out which way it goes. -6/7x -1/2y=3/7

Looks like this:

3. tcarroll010

In slope-intercept-form, that equation is: y = (-12/7)x - 6/7

You can graph that by getting the x and y intercepts and then just draw a straight line through the points.

THANK YOU BOTH! Can either of youu help me with this one too? –0.2x – 0.6y = 0.12

7. tcarroll010

You can get the y-intercept by seting "x" = to 0: y = (-12/7)(0) - 6/7 y = -6/7 Sure, fire away.

8. tcarroll010

You can get the x-intercept by setting "y" = 0: 0 = (-12/7)x - 6/7 x = -1/2

9. tcarroll010

btw, good luck with all of your studies and thx for the recognition!

10. lyzzy7

so what would that look like? and thank you for the help!

11. tcarroll010

The graph?

12. lyzzy7

yes

13. tcarroll010

In my post under your drawing I have an attachment.

14. lyzzy7

No, I mean for the second equation. Should I make it a seperate question so you can get another meal? Its this one. –0.2x – 0.6y = 0.12

metal*

medal* omg Hhaha

17. tcarroll010

lol sorry, didn't see that one. Ok, I'll get to work. Gotta get the eyes working first! :-) That's okay, I'll answer it here. Medals are nice, but I'm here to help. Medals are way secondary.

18. lyzzy7

Awhhh thanks!

19. tcarroll010

So, here's a FRESH graph. Hot off of the computer:

20. tcarroll010

That equation I re-wrote to: y = -x/5 - 0.2

21. tcarroll010

x and y intercepts are found the same way as described for the other one.

22. tcarroll010

Hope you come back and see your spanking-new graph! It was nice working with you. I had to go get a cake out of the oven, so hopefully I'll be back later. If my cake didn't burn. After I scrape burnt cake off of the walls.

23. lyzzy7

That is amazing! Thank you sooooooo much!

24. lyzzy7

and lol, good luck with your cake! Merry Christmas! or Happy Hanukah! or Happy Kwanza! Whatever your little heart desires! haha

25. tcarroll010

You're quite welcome, @lyzzy7 and the cake turned out OK! Homemade banana cake from scratch, from me! A non-baker! And merry X-mas to you, too!
