just use the replace and solve method. Replace y with 0, solve for x. : x intercept. Replace x with 0, solve for y : y-intercept
let me try it
y= -2x +1 0= -2x + 1 -1 -1 -1 = -2x
The problem is I don't know what to do once I am at this part...
in order to isolate x, we have to divide both sides by -2
agreed with Jhannybean -2x means "-2 times x" so if we had -2x = -1, and we wanted to isolate x, we undo the multiplication of the -2 the opposite of multiplication is division. You must divide both sides by -2 to isolate x
You first have to divide -2x by both sides so you would end up with y= x + -2
so x + 0.5?
I think you meant `x = 0.5` ?
oops I mean x = 0.5
correct. That or x = 1/2 which is the same thing in different form
@Jhannybean why do that? You stated above that y = 0. That's what led to x = 0.5 Don't you mean plug in x = 0 ?
so I plot one on (0.5,0) and another on (0,1) ?
That's true...i thought you could do either or. inputting it into my calculator i realize that it isn't possible.
was what I put correct?
`so I plot one on (0.5,0) and another on (0,1) ?` correct @Amineh0923 now draw a straight line through those points
