Sal's Sandwich Shop sells wraps and sandwiches as part of its lunch specials. The profit on every sandwich is $2 and the profit on every wrap is $3. Sal made a profit of $1,470 from lunch specials last month. The equation 2x + 3y = 1,470 represents Sal's profits last month, where x is the number of sandwich lunch specials sold and y is the number of wrap lunch specials sold. 1. Describe how you would graph this line using the slope intercept form feature to write using complete sentences.

    If you have to use the slope-intercept form, you have to rearrange the equation to y = mx+b first.

    Using that form, when x is zero, y is b -(the y-intercept)...that is one point when x is 1, y is m + b, that is the second point... you can graph the line
