Example 2 Draw the graph of 2  x  + 3  y  = 12 by finding the  x -intercept and the  y -intercept.  The  x -intercept has a  y -coordinate of zero. Substituting zero for  y , the resulting equation is  x  + 3(0) = 12  Now, solving for  x The  x -intercept is at (6,0).  The  y -intercept has an  x -coordinate of zero. Substituting zero for  x , the resulting equation is  2(0) + 3

Unformatted text preview: y = 12 Now, solving for y , The y-intercept is at (0,4). The line now can be graphed, as shown in Figure 2, by plotting these two points and drawing the line they determine. Notice that Figures 1 and 2 are exactly the same. Both are the graph of the line 2 x + 3 y = 12. Figure 2. x- and y-intercepts....
