2-71.

Sometimes the quickest and easiest two points to use to graph a line that is not in slope-intercept form are the *-* and

*intercepts. Determine the* -

*and* -

*intercepts for the two lines below and then use them to graph each line. Write the coordinates of the* -

*and* -

*intercepts on your graph.* -

The -intercept is the value of

*when*

*is*

To find the -intercept, substitute

*and evaluate.*

The

*-intercept is*

*-intercept, but substitute*

*instead.*

Plot the two intercepts and draw the line to connect them.

Label the intercept points.
