Determine the slope and y intercept for d1: -2x+3y+1=0 d2: 2x-3y+1=0

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

d1: -2x + 3y + 1 = 0

d2: 2x - 3y +1 = 0

For d1:

d1: -2x + 3y +1 = 0

==> y = (2/3)x + 1/2

Then the slope is m = 2/3 The y-intercept is where the function intersect with y-axis, then x should be...

d1: -2x + 3y + 1 = 0

d2: 2x - 3y +1 = 0

For d1:

d1: -2x + 3y +1 = 0

==> y = (2/3)x + 1/2

Then the slope is m = 2/3
The y-intercept is where the function intersect with y-axis, then x should be 0:

==> y= (2/3)*0 + 1/3 = 1/3

Then y-intercept = 1/3

 

For d2:

d2= 2x+3y +1 = 0

==> y= (-2/3)x -1/3

Then the slope m = -2/3

The y-intercept = -1/3
