# How do you graph x-y=-3 using intercepts?

Mar 11, 2017

intercepts = $\left(- 3 , 0\right) , \left(0 , 3\right)$

On the rectangular coordinate system place a point at the intercepts and draw a line that passes through them.

#### Explanation:

To find $x$-intercept, set $y = 0$; $x = - 3$

To find $y$-intercept, set $x = 0$, $- y = - 3$

Divide by $- 1$: $\frac{- y}{-} 1 = - \frac{3}{-} 1$

So the $y$-intercept $= \left(0 , 3\right)$

On the rectangular coordinate system place a point at the intercepts and draw a line that passes through them.
