When this equation is graphed on a coordinate plane, where does the line intercept the y-axis?Answer by stanbon(57387)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The equation 3x − 2y = −16 can be used to determine the size of a recommended refrigerator, where y represents the volume of the refrigerator in cubic feet, and x represents the number of people (greater than 2) living in the residence. When this equation is graphed on a coordinate plane, where does the line intercept the y-axis? --- The y-axis passes thru all the points where x = 0. So, let x = 0 and solve your equation for "y": --- 3x-2y = -16 -2y = -16 y = 8 --- The y-intercept is (0,8) =========================== Cheers, Stan H. ===========
