 Question 218689: Line 1 is described by the equation 3y - 2x = -3. Line 2 goes through the origin and intersects line 1 at x=6. What equation describes line 2?Answer by drj(1380)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Line 1 is described by the equation 3y - 2x = -3. Line 2 goes through the origin and intersects line 1 at x=6. What equation describes line 2? Step 1. At x=6 then to find y substitute into 3y-2x=-3 Add 12 to both sides of the equation Divide 3 to both sides of the equation Step 2. The intersection point is (6,3) Step 3. We can find the equation of line 2 with these two points: (0,0) and (6,3). Step 4. Slope and y-intercept b=0 since it passes through the origin (0,0) Step 5. ANSWER: The equation is I hope the above steps and explanation were helpful.
