Please helllppppp!? :D Which of the below systems of equations matches the following graph? x – 3y = 9 2x + 3y = 0 x + 3y = –9 2x + 3y = 0 x – 3y = –9 2x – 3y = 0 x + 3y = 9 2x – 3y = 0

    Just take some points on the graph and substitute them in the equation. Whatever equations satisfy the point are your equations

    satisfy the point in the sense which give 0 on substitution of x and y co-ordinates in the place of x and y

    they both intersect at (2,3) so if we substitute these equations in the above equations none satisfy so none of the equations match the graph

    The point of intersection is (3,2) not (2,3)

    in that case the last set is your answer try substituting 2 and 3 in the place of x and y

    So, would this be the answer? x – 3y = –9 2x – 3y = 0

    no x+3y=9 (3+3*2=9) and 2x-3y=o (2*3-3*2=0)
