# How do you graph using the intercepts for -18x + 3y = -12?

Feb 2, 2016

Solve for the intercepts, then draw a straight line between them.

#### Explanation:

Solving for the intercepts yields:

$- 18 \left(0\right) + 3 y = - 12$
$y = - 4$

$- 18 x + 3 \left(0\right) = - 12$
$x = \frac{2}{3}$

So plot the points $\left(0 , - 4\right)$ and $\left(\frac{2}{3} , 0\right)$ and draw a straight line connecting them.
