7-59.

Find the equation of each of the lines graphed below. Then confirm algebraically that (1, 1) is the point of intersection. Homework Help ✎

Use *y = mx + b*.

You need to find the slope and *y*-intercept of each line.

For one of the lines, the slope is 3 and the *y*-intercept is −2.

Therefore its equation in *y* = 3*x* − 2. Now write the equation of the other line.

Use the Equal Values Method to confirm that (1, 1) is the point of intersection.
