Worksheet
Points of intersection
1

For each of the following, state the coordinates of the point of intersection of the two lines:

a
b
c
d
e
f
g
h
i
j
2

The graph of y = 3 x - 4 is shown on the coordinate plane:

a

Consider the horizontal line with equation y = 8.

State the point of intersection of the graph of y = 3 x - 4 with the line y = 8.

b

Hence determine the value of x that solves the equation 3 x - 4 = 8.

3

The graph of y = -2 x - 4 is shown on the coordinate plane:

a

State the point of intersection of the graph with the line y = - 12.

b

Hence determine the value of x that solves the equation - 2 x - 4 = - 12.

4

The graph of y = -\dfrac{x}{2} + 6 is shown on the coordinate plane:

a

In order to solve the equation \\- \dfrac{x}{2} + 6 = 8, state the equation of the other line that must be graphed on the axes.

b

Hence find the solution to - \dfrac{x}{2} + 6 = 8.

c

Explain why it is not necessary to write the y-value in your answer to part (b).

5

The graph of y = \dfrac{4x}{3} + 5 is shown on the coordinate plane:

a

In order to solve the equation \\ \dfrac{4x}{3} + 5 = 13, state the equation of the other line that must be graphed on the axes.

b

Hence find the solution to \dfrac{4 x}{3} + 5 = 13.

6
