1-61.

Consider the equation

Predict what the graph of this equation looks like. Justify your answer.

Are there any exponents? What does this mean?

Solve the equation for

*y*and graph the equation.Get

*y*by itself.Explain clearly how to find the

*x*- and*y*-intercepts.The

*x*-intercept is the point where.

The*y*-intercept is the point where.Which form of the equation is best for finding the

*x*- and*y*-intercepts quickly? Why?It’s easier to use the given, standard form of the equation to find the intercepts quickly because there is minimal rewriting involved.

Find the

*x*- and*y*-intercepts of. Then use the intercepts to sketch a graph quickly. Set

to find the*y*-intercept, andto find the*x*-intercept.*x*-intercept: (−9, 0)*y*-intercept: (0, 6)
