Unformatted text preview: ntercept of the line, that’s the number without an x (including sign) and as discussed above we can use the slope to find a second point on the line. At that point there isn’t anything to do other than sketch the line. (a) 2 y - 6 x = -2 First solve the equation for y. Remember that we solved equations like this back in the previous chapter. 2 y = 6x - 2 y = 3x - 1 So, the slope for this line is 3 and the y-intercept is the point ( 0, -1) . Don’t forget to take the sign when determining the y-intercept. Now, to find the second point we usually like the slope written as a fraction to make it clear what the rise and run are. So, m=3= 3 rise = 1 run Þ rise = 3, run = 1 The second point is then, x2 = 0 + 1 = 1 y 2 = -1 + 3 = 2 Þ (1, 2 ) Here is a sketch of the graph of the line.
