 Question 209822: Can I get someone to help me with this one? Find the intercepts and then graph the equation: 60 = 20x - 3yAnswer by Earlsdon(6294)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Find the x- and y-intercepts of: 60 = 20x-3y The x-intercept is found by setting y=0 and solving for x. 60 = 20x-3(0) 60 = 20x Divide both sides by 20. 3 = x or x = 3 So the x-intercept is at (3, 0). Similarly, the y-intercept is found by setting x=0 and solving for y. 60 = 20(0)-3y 60 = -3y Divide both sides by -3. -20 = y or y = -20 So the y-intercept is at (0, -20) For the graph, you need only two points and the two intercepts just found will do nicely. Plot these two points on your coordinate graph paper and connect them with a straight line. Here's what it should look like:
