# How do you graph using x and y intercept of 3x-4y+2=0?

Mar 14, 2017

#### Explanation:

We can find $x$-intercept by putting $y = 0$ in the given equation $3 x - 4 y + 2 = 0$ and $y$-intercept by putting $y = 0$ in the equation.

Hence $x$-intercept is given by $3 x - 4 \times 0 + 2 = 0$ i.e. $x = - \frac{2}{3}$ at $\left(- \frac{2}{3} , 0\right)$

and $y$-intercept is given by $3 \times 0 - 4 y + 2 = 0$ i.e. $y = \frac{1}{2}$ at $\left(0 , \frac{1}{2}\right)$

The graph will be obtained by joining $\left(- \frac{2}{3} , 0\right)$ and $\left(0 , \frac{1}{2}\right)$ and appears as given below.
