In your notebook, write down today's date and the title "Graphing Using Intercepts". Now, write down a definition for x-intercept and another for y-intercept. Click the appropriate box below when you completed that task.

Yes Mr. Felix, I wrote down two definitions in my notebook. I love taking notes because it helps me review when I'm studying. What a cool thing! It's like having my math teacher in my living room at night explaining things to me but it's only my notes. I'm kinda scared now.

No, I have not written down two definitions.

You are helping to plan an awards banquet for your school, and you need to rent tables to seat 180 people. Tables come in two sizes. Small tables seat 4 people and large tables seat 6 people. Write an equation in function form to model the scenario above. For reference, label small tables as x and large tables as y.
