# How do you graph using the intercepts for 4y-16=x?

Dec 30, 2015

First, convert to slope intercept form

#### Explanation:

4y - 16 = x
4y = x + 16
y = $\frac{1}{4} x$ + 4

Now you know the slope ($\frac{1}{4}$) and the y intercept (0,4). All you have to do now is determine the x intercept.

4(0) - 16 = x
x = -16

The x intercept is at (-16, 0)

After graphing, you'll get a graph that should resemble the following. graph{4y - 16 = x [-20, 20, -10, 10]}

Hopefully you understand now!
