How do you graph using intercept : 4x - 3y = 12 : Put the graph in the slope intercept form: 4x - 3y = 12 -3y = -4x + 12 We want y to be positive, multiply equation by -1 3y = +4x - 12 Divide equation by 3 to get 1y y = (4/3)x - (12/3) y = (4/3)x - 4, is the slope/intercept form : Graph by making a table assigning a value to x and solving for y: x | y -------- -3 |-8 0 |-4 +3 | 0 +6 | +9 | You should be able to finish this table : This is a linear equation so you really only need to have two points, a 3rd point, will confirm it as a straight line. should look like this
