# How do you graph using the intercepts for -4x-14y=28?

Nov 4, 2015

Simplify it and use the formulas; for x-intercept, y=0 and vice versa.

#### Explanation:

$- 4 x - 14 y = 28$
$- 14 y = 4 x + 28$
$y = - \frac{2}{7} x - 2$

Using the formulas, substitute, and you can get $- 7$ for your $x$ intercept. Since I have written my equation in slope intercept form, ($y = m x + b$), my $b$ is my $y$ intercept, $- 2$.

Since you have your intercepts, plot the two points and connect.
