    ok use this site and just enter the equations as written https://www.desmos.com/calculator then just read off the point of intersection

    but if you have to graph the lines find the intercepts 2x + 4y = 4 x- intercept let y = 0 so 2x = 4 or x = 2 y- intercept let x = 0 so 4y = 4 or y = 1 same process for the 2nd line hope it helps

    So you want to graph the lines and then find where they intersect

    Do you know how to graph them?

    First I would convert them to slope-intercept form. (Y=mX+b) That will make it easier to graph.
