The equation is .

First find the *y*-intercept.

The *y*-intercept is the value of *y*, when *x* = 0.

(Substitute *x* = 0 in original equation)

(Apply Additive identity property: 0 + 3 = 3)

The *y*-intercept is 3, so the graph intersects the *y*-axis at (0, 3).

Find the *x*-intercept.

The *x*-intercept is the value of *x*, when *y* = 0.

(Substitute *y* = 0 in original equation)

Apply subtraction property of equality: If *a* = *b* then *a **– c *=* b **– c*.

(Subtract 3 from each side)

(Simplify)

The *x*-intercept is , so the graph intersects the *x*-axis at (, 0).

Graph Using Intercepts:

Use these ordered pairs to graph the equation.

**1. **Draw a coordinate plane.

**2. **Plot the points.

**3. **Draw a line through these points.

Graph of the equation is .
