State the x intercept and y intercept for the graph of each equation. Then graph the equation using x and yintercepts
1) 2x + 3y = 12
2) y = 2x 4
I hope someone maybe able to help me so I understand I submitted these two above and I got them wrong so I hope someone maybe able to help me so I understand as I am not sure what I have done wrong. Thanks

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to find the xintercept, substitute 0 for y in the equation and solve for x. to find the yintercept, substitute 0 for x in the equation and solve for y. then to graph, just graph the intercepts on the coordinate plane, and then draw a line through the points

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you plug in the y equation into the x one. 2x+3(2x4)=12 2x+6x12=12 4x12=12 4x=24 x=6, then plug in 6 into the y equation. y= 2(6)4 y= 124 y= 8 you should have (6,8)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.11) 2x + 3y = 12 to find xintercept: 2x + 3(0) = 12 solve for x to find yintercept: 2(0) + 3y = 12 solve for y
