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

Apr 6, 2018

Plot the $x$ and $y$ intercepts on a number plane and draw a straight line through them.

Explanation:

The $x$-intercept can be found by subbing in $y = 0$.

When $y = 0$, $2 x = 19 \implies x = 9.5$

The $y$-intercept can be found by subbing in $x = 0$.

When $x = 0$, $y = 19$
