7-74.

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

*-intercepts. Find 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.
