@christinaxxx @NotTim

4. satellite73

$-5x+2=x+6$ is what you need to solve right?

5. mariomintchev

yeah

6. mariomintchev

im getting -1,5 as the intersection. (even when i use my graphing calc)

7. satellite73

$-5x+2=x+6$ $2=6x+6$ $-4=6x$ $x=-\frac{2}{3}$

8. mariomintchev

and then plug that in for x? when i do i get 5.33333333 and i round to 5 but final answer isnt (-2/3, 5)

9. satellite73

don't round leave the fraction

10. satellite73

$y=-\frac{2}{3}+6=5\tfrac{1}{3}=\frac{16}{3}$
