ok, well the book give this example

2x-3y=6

which gives me

x=3

y=-2

But my homework question, doesnt seem to work and I have no examples to help.

Find both x-intercept and y-interceptof the given equation.

7x-8y+6=0

7x-8*0+6=0

7x+6=0

-6 -6

7x=-6

/7 /7

x=-6/7

7*0-8y+6=0

-8y+6=0

-6 -6

-8y=-6

/-8 /-8

y=-6/8

So I would have

x-intercept (-6/7,0)

y-intercept (0,-6/8)

This doesn't look correct.
