 Question 127875: . Solve the system by graphing. x + 3y = -3, 2x – y = 8 Do I solve this first and then graph it? How do I graph it? Answer by stanbon(57387)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Solve the system by graphing. x + 3y = -3 2x – y = 8 -------------- Solve each equation for "y". y = (-1/3)x -1 y = 2x - 8 ---------------- Plot points for each equation: y = (-1/3)x - 1 If x = 0, y = -1 If x = 3, y = -2 Plot the points: (0,-1) and (3,-2) and draw a line thru them. ------------------------------ y = 2x - 8 If x = 0, y = -8 If x = 1, y = -6 --------------------- plot the points: (0,-8) and (1,-6) and draw a line thru them. ============================= Solution: (3,-2) ============================== Cheers, Stan H.
