Have you graphed the equation? Are you asking someone to solve and give you the answer or tell you how to use your software?

Rewrite the equation in the form y=mx + b, where m is the slop and b is the y intercept. To find the x intercept just solve for x with y being 0. when you rewrite the equation you get 0=1/2(x) + Y, bring the y to the other side and now you have -y=1/2(x) now divide off the neg sign and you will end up with y= -1/2(x), notice there is no b in this equation so the y intercept is at 0, if you set x to zero (which is where the y intercept would be you get y=0) now set y =0 and you get 0=-1/2x divide off the -1/2 and you get x=0. So this line goes through the origin and the x and y intercepts are both zero. The slope of the line is -1/2 so it decrease going from left to right.

### Find the equations of circles passing through (1,-1),touching the lines 4x+3y+5=0 and 3x-4y-10=0

First, I graphed the lines and the point using Desmos.com.

I noticed that the two lines are perpendicular to each other and the point (1,-1) appears to be on the right side of the circle, on a line parallel to 3x -4y-10=0. The equation of this line is y= 3/4x - 1.75. The y-intercept is -1.75. Now we have two points on the opposite sides of the circle, (1, -1) and (0,-1.75). The midpoint formula will give you the centre of the circle and the distance formula will provide the radius.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Good luck.

### Find the x- and y-intercepts and graph the equation plotting the intercepts. Please show all of your work. Submit your graph to the Dropbox.5x-4y=-10

Use the definitions of the intercepts.
x-intercepts (or zeros or roots) are the values of the independent variables that make the function equal to zero. To obtain an intercept set y=0 in equation : 5x=-10, mean x=-10/5=-2
y-intercept: value of y when x=0.
Just set x=0 in equaltion and solve for y
-4y=-10, gives y=5/2

And Sorry, I cannot enter the answer in the drop box.

### How do I use this calculator to find the x and y intercepts when the problem has both the x and y letters. it will not allow me to enter the full equation. example problem is 2x-5y=20 and I need to find...

x-intercept (or zero of the function)
Set y=0 in the equation and solve fo x: 2x-5(0)=20 and x=20/2=10

y-intercept (initial value)
Set x= 0 in the equation and solve for y: 2(0)-5y=20 and y=20/(-5)=-4

If the equation is in the slope-intercept form y=ax+b
1. y-intercept is b
2. To get the x-intercept ( zero of the function) Set y=0=ax+b, and x=-b/a

### 2x - 4y = 20 4x + 2y = -20

This should start wit X=something and Y=something, sorry I'm not an human algebra calculator....

That is an equation describing a straight line. The "slope-intercept" form of a line is

y = mx + b

where m is the slope (change in y-value / change in x-value)
and b is the y-intercept (the point where the line crosses the y-axis when x=0)

Positive slope means the line is rising and negative slope means it's falling.

You can rewrite the original equation 2x - 4y -9 = 0 in slope-intercept form:

y = (1/2)x - (9/4)

So you know the slope is positive 1/2 (line rises 1 y-unit for each 2 x-unit change) and crosses the y-axis at -9/4. With this information you can graph the line.

### 2X+4Y=-8

2x + 4y = -8 ; divide each side by 2
x + 2y = -4 ; subtract x from both sides
2y = -4 - x ; rearrange
2y = -1x -4 ; divide each side by 2
y = -1/2x - 2 ; relate to slope/intercept form of line (y=mx+b)

implies there are multiple solutions that fall along a line with slope -1/2 and y intercept of -2

### How do I solve x and y in the following equations? 5x+3y=6 2x-4y=5 Thank you

You can solve it with following method.

5x+3y=6 2x-4y=5
So 5x=6-3y so 2[(6-3y)/5]-4y=5
So x=(6-3y)/5 so 12-6y-20y=25
so -26y=25-12
so -26y=13
so y= -(1/2)
2x-4y=5
so 2x=5+4y
so 2x=5+4(-1/2)
so 2x=(10-4)/2
so 2x=6/4
so x =3/2

The value of x=3/2 and value of y= -1/2

Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.
