 Question 201739: How do you solve the systems of linear equations using the graphing method? I understand the elimination method and etc., but I do not get how to solve using the graphing method. I know that the first step is putting it in slope-intercept form, but the graphing part I am having trouble with. How do you graph it exactly? Is there a specific way to plot points? For example, how do you solve for this: 4x+2y=8 y=-2x+6 So far I tried doing it, and I've gotten the answer (3,2) but I did it again and there was no solution because it was parrallel.
