### A linear equation is given below. Determine the steps to solve the equation for its inverse. y=6x+24

Step 1 - replace each x with a y and replace each y with an x
x=6y+24
Step 2 - Solve for y to get the equation in the slope intercept form y=mx+b
Step 3 - get the 24 to the other side by subtracting 24 for both sides
x-24=6y + 24 - 24
Simplify
x - 24 = 6y
Divide by the coefficient in front of the y to get y by itself.
x/6 - 24/6 = y
x/6 -4 = y

Write in the normal format by switching the sides.

y = x/6 - 4

Good luck.

### 8x+5y=-25 help me find the x Andy intercepts

To find the x-intercept, set y equal to zero and solve for x.
To find the y-intercept, set x equal to zero and solve for y.

In this case the x-intercept is -3 1/8 and the y-intercept is -5.

### Find x and Y intercept for y = -8x

In general just put x=0 and y=0 in turn. You see the line passes thru the origin 0,0

Actually any line with the form y=mx will do that.

### -6x-3y=27

The x intercept is where your line will cross the x axis. Therefore, the value for y at this point is 0. Substitute 0 for y in this equation and solve for x.

6x + 3(0) = 27
x = 27/6
x = 4 1/2

x intercept = (4 1/2, 0)

Follow the same reasoning for the y intercept.

6(0) + 3y = 27
y = 27/3
y = 9

y intercept = (0,9)

Now plot these two points and draw your line through them.

### 3x+6y=90 what is the y and x intercepts

By definition, the y-intercept is the value of y when x=0. Just set x=0 in the equation and solve for y.
Hence 3(0)+6y=90 or 6y=90. This gives y=90/6=15. The point of intercept of the y-axis is (0,15).
To get the x-intercept, set y= 0 in the equation and solve for x.
3x+6(0)=90 or 3x=90. This gives x=90/3=30.
The point of intercept of the x-axis is (30,0).

### Find the y and x intercept of this equation 3x-6y=-21

To get the y-intercept of a line you set x=0. So 3(0)-6y=-21. Solve for y: y=(-21/-6)=7/2.
For the x-intercept, set y=0 in the definition of the function, then you solve for x.
3x-6(0)=-21. or 3x=-21 and x= -21/3=-7

### How to fine the slope and y-intercept for f(x)=-8x-6

The slope is the coefficient of the x term and the intercept is the constant term. So, for f(x)=-8x-6, the slope is -8 and the intercept is -6.

### (-4,6), m = 8

The equation of a straight line is given by y=mx + b where y if the y intercept on a graph and x is the x intercept on a graph and m is the slope of the line

Using the given information of ( -4, 6), m=8

-4 is the x intercept, 6 is the y intercept and the slope is 8.

Plugging these values into the y = mx + b gives 6 = (8) (-4) + b solving for b gives b = 32

Going back to the original equation of a straight line gives the equation of y = 8x + 32

Hope this helps Loringh PS Please leave a rating for me Thank you
