Substitute x = 0 in the given line equation to get y- intercepts. -2.x+ y = -4 -2(0)+ y =-4 y=-4 Thus, y- in tercept is y=-4. ordered pair (x. y,)=(0.-4) Substitute y = 0 in the given line equation to getx- intercepts. -2x+ y = -4 -2x+0 =-4 -4 = 2 -2 Thus, x- in tercept is x= 2. ordered pair (x,. y;)= (2,0) Substitute x=1 in the given line equation to get some random coordinate. -2x+ y = -4 -2(1) + y = -4 y=-4+2 = -2 ordered pair (x,. y;) = (1.-2) Thus, three ordered pairs are (0,-4).(2.0). (1,-2)
