  Precalculus: Mathematics for Calculus - 6th Edition, Chapter 1.10, Problem 49E , additional homework tip  1

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

  12x13y+1=0

Formula used:

Slope-intercept form of line: y=mx+c , where m is the slope and c is the y-intercept cut by the line.

  12x13y+1=0

Converting the line into slope intercept form

  x2y3+1=0y3=x2+1y=3x2+3

  m=32c=3

Plotting the Graph

Finding two points on line

  x=662y3+1=03+1=y3y=12

  (6,12)

  y=6x263+1=0x2=21x=2

  (2,6)
