# How do you graph using the intercepts for 2x+y=19?

Jun 17, 2018

As below.

#### Explanation:

Intercept form of linear equation is $\frac{x}{a} + \frac{y}{b} = 1$

$2 x + y = 19$

$\frac{x}{\frac{19}{2}} + \frac{y}{19} = 1$

x-intercept $= \frac{19}{2}$, y-intercept $= 19$

Two points on the line are $\left(\frac{19}{2} , 0\right) , \left(0 , 19\right)$

Now we can plot the points on the graph and form the line.
