# How do you find the intercepts for 2x - 3y = -18?

Jul 2, 2015

do you need to find the $y$-intercept??

If so, you have to arrange it into $y$$=$$m$$x$$+$$c$ equation

#### Explanation:

$m$= gradient
$c$$=$ $y$-intercept

bing your 2$x$ to the right side...becomes ($-$2$x$)
then, divide all over it with $-$3, so you have only $y$ at the left hand side

Thus,

$-$3$y$$=$$-$2$x$$-$18
$y$$=$($-$2$x$$-$18)$/$$-$3

$\therefore$ $y$$=$2$/$3$x$$+$6

$m$$=$ 2$/$3
$c$$=$ 6

i hope this helps :) xx
