 Click here to see ALL problems on Linear-equations Question 34795This question is from textbook Prentice Hall Mathematics: Course 3 : Hi, I need to graph this problem:y=x+2 y=2x+1 I know that the solution is (1,3). Its just every time that I try to graph the equation, my lines dont cross correctly. So that you are not confused with what I am talking about, I am supposed to be solving linear systems by graphing. Please, if you can email this to me before 4/25/06 since it is 4/24/06 that would be great! Thank you and have a great day! Sincerely, a student working for 1st honors this marking period This question is from textbook Prentice Hall Mathematics: Course 3 Answer by stanbon(57967)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!#1 equation: y=x+2 Find the y-intercept: Let x=0, then y=2 ; gives you point (0,2) Find the x-intercept: Ley y=0, then x=-2; gives you point (-2,0) Plot these two points and draw a line through them. #2 equaion: y=2x+1 Find y-int: If x=0 then y= 1; giving point (0,1) Find x-int: If y=0 then x=-1/2; giving point (-1/2, 0) Plot these two points and draw a line through them. If you use the same scale on the x and y axis and are reasonably careful with your plotting you should be able to see the x and y values of the point of intersection. Cheers, stan H.
