yes

4x + 2y = 6

At the y-intercept, x=0 .-2y = 18y = -9

The y-intercept of a linear equation is the point on the y-axis at which the line cuts.It could be found by plugging x = 0 in the given linear equation.For example,Consider 3x + 2y = 6. To find the y-intercept just plug x = 0 in the equation.3(0) + 2y = 62y = 6y = 3(0, 3) is the y-intercept of the linear equation 2x + 3y = 6.Note:In the same way we can find the x-intercept by plugging y = 0 in the given linear equation.

If the equal sign in a linear equation in two variables is replaced with an inequality symbol, the result is a linear inequality in two variables. 3x-2y>7 x<-5

2y - 4x = -12 2y = 4x - 12 At the x-intercept, y = 0. 0 = 4x - 12 0 = x - 3 x = 3

2y-3x=4

If: 2y-4x = -12 Then: y = 2x-6 So the y intercept is -6 and the slope is 2

Yes, it is a linear straight line equation.

2y-4x=-12 Add 4x to each side 2y=4x-12 Divide each side by 2 y=2x-6 The y-intercept is (0,-6)

At the x-intercept, y=0 so...2y - 4x = -122(0) - 4x = -12-4x = -124x = 12x = 12/4x = 3

what is the slope of the line that has the equation 4x+2y=12?

4x + 2y = 6

For x-intercept, y = 0 so -4x = -12 therefore x = 3.

At the y-intercept, x=0 .-2y = 18y = -9
