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.
