"Using the Intercepts Method"
There are 2 Intercepts for any linear equation:
• x-intercept: where line crosses the xaxis
• y-intercept: where line crosses the yaxis
*to find x-intercept from any eq'n, let y = 0, and solve for x.
*to find y-intercept from any eq'n, let x = 0, and solve for y.

"Using Slope‐Intercept Form"
y = mx + b the slopeintercept form of a linear eq'n.
* To graph using this method,
we MUST convert equations to slope-intercept form
• Graph x 2y = 2 using slopeint. method
