Unformatted text preview: 2 = x Therefore, the x
intercept is (2,0). Now, we will ﬁnd the y
intercept by plugging in x = 0 into the equa+on and solving for y. y = (3/4)(0) – 3/2 Graph of
3x + 4y =
6 Example. Graph
3x + 4y =
6. Solu+on: We must ﬁrst solve for y in the equa+on. 4y = 3x – 6 y = (3/4)x – 3/2 Now, we will ﬁnd the x
intercept by plugging in y = 0 into the equa+on and solving for x. 0 = (3/4)x – 3/2 3/2 = (3/4)x 2 = x Therefore, the x
intercept is (2,0). Now, we will ﬁnd the y
intercept by plugging in x = 0 into the equa+on and solving for y. y = (3/4)(0) – 3/2 y =
3/2 Therefore, the y
intercept is (0,
3/2). Graph of
3x + 4y =
6 Now we must ﬁnd at least two addi+onal points. Graph of

6 Now we must ﬁnd at least two addi+onal points. Let us plug in x = 6 into the equa+on. Graph of
3x + 4y =
6 Now we must ﬁnd at least two addi+onal points. Let us plug in x = 6 into the equa+on. y = (3/4)(6) – 3/2 = 9/2 – 3/2 = 6/2 = 3 Graph of
3x + 4y =
6 Now we must ﬁnd at least two addi+onal points. Let us plug in x = 6 into the equa+on. y = (3/4)(6) – 3/2 = 9/2 – 3/2 = 6/2 = 3 Therefore, another point that sa+sﬁes the equa+on is (6, 3). Graph of
