$y = - \dfrac { x } { 3 } + 4$
$y = - 2$
$x$Intercept
$\left ( 12 , 0 \right )$
$y$Intercept
$\left ( 0 , 4 \right )$
$x = 18$
$ $ Solve a solution to $ x$
$\color{#FF6800}{ - } \color{#FF6800}{ \dfrac { \color{#FF6800}{ x } } { \color{#FF6800}{ 3 } } } \color{#FF6800}{ + } \color{#FF6800}{ 4 } = \color{#FF6800}{ - } \color{#FF6800}{ 2 }$
$ $ Multiply both sides by the least common multiple for the denominators to eliminate the fraction $ $
$\color{#FF6800}{ - } \color{#FF6800}{ x } \color{#FF6800}{ + } \color{#FF6800}{ 12 } = \color{#FF6800}{ - } \color{#FF6800}{ 6 }$
$- x \color{#FF6800}{ + } \color{#FF6800}{ 12 } = - 6$
$ $ Move the constant to the right side and change the sign $ $
$- x = - 6 \color{#FF6800}{ - } \color{#FF6800}{ 12 }$
$- x = \color{#FF6800}{ - } \color{#FF6800}{ 6 } \color{#FF6800}{ - } \color{#FF6800}{ 12 }$
$ $ Find the sum of the negative numbers $ $
$- x = \color{#FF6800}{ - } \color{#FF6800}{ 18 }$
$\color{#FF6800}{ - } \color{#FF6800}{ x } = \color{#FF6800}{ - } \color{#FF6800}{ 18 }$
$ $ Change the sign of both sides of the equation $ $
$x = 18$
