 Question 242770: I am stuck on the following question and could use a hand. I am especially stuck on the graphing part. Thanks in advance. solve the system of equations by graphing 6x-8y = 40 also, below that is another equation for the y/x intercepts 6x=8y+40Answer by Alan3354(31532)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!solve the system of equations by graphing 6x-8y = 40 also, below that is another equation for the y/x intercepts 6x=8y+40 ----------- The graph is a straight line, so only 2 points are needed. Solve the equation for x or y. 6x-8y = 40 8y = 6x-40 y = 3x/4 - 5 Pick values for x and find y x....y 0....-5 --> (0,-5) 4....-2 --> (4,-2) Draw a line thru the 2 points. ---------------- That's the same eqn To find the y-intercept, set x=0 and v.v. (0,-5) y-int (20/3,0) x-int
