Question 308009: Okay how do I solve the following questions by following this rule: "Graph the following equations; calculate the slope, x-intercept, and y-intercept, and label the intercepts on the graph."
4. y = -2x - 7
5. 2x + 3y = 9

Many many thanks for those who can help with these questions. Answer by FeliciaGail(1) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! 5. ) 2x + 3y = 9
Y=mx + b
Y= (-4.2/3.8)x +1.9/3.8
Y= (-2.1/1.9) x +.5
Now you have the slope of this line (-1.1) and the y-intercept of .5 setting y=0 you can get the x-intercept thus.
0 = 1.1x + .5
X = .4545 which is the x –intercept (.4545, -1.1) are two points on the line.
