 Question 569246: when you have a number in front of x and y... how do you find the slope?? how do you find the x and y intercept in an easy way?? how do you graph an equation that is in standard form?? EXAMPLE: 3x+2y=6 how do you graph it??Answer by scott8148(6628)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!easy way for intercepts x equals zero at the y-intercept and y equals zero at the x-intercept take the standard form equation and ignore the term that your not finding the intercept of (because the term equals zero) 3x + 2y = 6 ___ ignoring the y-term ___ 3x = 6 ___ x = 2 ___ the x-intercept is (0,2) ignoring the x-term ___ 2y = 6 ___ y = 3 ___ the y-intercept is (3,0) graph the equation by locating the two intercepts and drawing the line through the two points the slope is also easy ___ -(y-intercept) / (x-intercept) ___ -3 / 2
