# How do you graph #y=2/3x-4#?

##### 1 Answer

Refer to the explanation.

#### Explanation:

Graph:

where:

You need two points on the line. Let one of the points be the x-intercept and the other point be the y-intercept.

The y-intercept is

The x-intercept is the value of

To determine the x-intercept, substitute

Multiply both sides by

Simplify.

Add

Divide both sides by

Simplify.

The x-intercept is

Plot the x- and y-intercepts and draw a straight line through them.
