# How do you graph using the intercepts for 3x - 2y = -15?

color(blue)(" x-intercept " = -5" y-intercept " = 15/2

#### Explanation:

$3 x - 2 y = - 15$

When y = 0, " x-intercept " x = -15/3 = -5

:. (x_1, y_1) = ((-5,0)

Likewise, when x = 0, " y-intercept " y = 15/2

$\therefore \left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right) = \left(0 , - \frac{15}{2}\right)$

Knowing two points, we can plot the graph.

graph{(3/2)x + (15/2) [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
