 
Hi Tamara, Let me try this with two slightly different equations,
Changing these equations to the slopeintercept form I get
Now I plotted the line using the intercepts. In the first equation when x = 0, y = 4/3 and
The point P is the intersection point and I can see for the diagram that the xcoordinate of P is a little less than 1 and the ycoordinate of P is a little less than 1. I then solved for P algebraically and found that P is (10/13, 14/13). I hope this helps,
