#### Answer:

See answer below

#### Explanation:

Given:

When the line is in the form

- Graphing
#y = -1/2 x + 1# by

a. first placing a point at

b. The slope =

- Graphing
#y = 1/4 x - 2# by

a. first placing a pint at

b. The slope = 1/4 which means go up one

The intersection point is the solution to the system of equations.

The solution is

graph{(y+1/2x - 1)(y-1/4x+2)=0 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
