\[y = 2x  17 \\ y = 3x + 13\]Here is what you get doing a little work.

To find the intersection of two lines, just solve the system of equations.

Look closely. We know that \(y=2x−17\) and we also know that \(y=−3x+13\) so I can have them equal to each other, like \(\large y=2x−17 \text{ & } y=−3x+13 \Rightarrow 2x17 = 3x + 13\) Is this clear?

\[y = 2x  17\]\[y = 3x +13\] dw:1359305952937:dw \[2x  17 = 3x + 13\]

once you find the x value, plug that into either equation to find your y value then you are done...........
