If you use the definition of the y-intercept you will immediatedly find it.**y-intercept = value of y when x=0.** Set x=0 in the function y=x and determine y. The y-intercept is also known as the initial value.

You can't solve this. When you have two unknowns you need two equations to solve it and not -10x + 70y = 120, because that is the same equation.

If you know the value of x, or from y you also could solve it.

To find the x-intercept, set y equal to zero and solve for x.

To find the y-intercept, set x equal to zero and solve for y.

In this case the x-intercept is -3 1/8 and the y-intercept is -5.

The x intercept is where your line will cross the x axis. Therefore, the value for y at this point is 0. Substitute 0 for y in this equation and solve for x.

6x + 3(0) = 27

x = 27/6

x = 4 1/2

x intercept = (4 1/2, 0)

Follow the same reasoning for the y intercept.

6(0) + 3y = 27

y = 27/3

y = 9

y intercept = (0,9)

Now plot these two points and draw your line through them.

6x + 3(0) = 27

x = 27/6

x = 4 1/2

x intercept = (4 1/2, 0)

Follow the same reasoning for the y intercept.

6(0) + 3y = 27

y = 27/3

y = 9

y intercept = (0,9)

Now plot these two points and draw your line through them.

Use the definitions of the intercepts.

x-intercepts (or zeros or roots) are the values of the independent variables that make the function equal to zero. To obtain an intercept set y=0 in equation : 5x=-10, mean x=-10/5=-2

y-intercept: value of y when x=0.

Just set x=0 in equaltion and solve for y

-4y=-10, gives y=5/2

And Sorry, I cannot enter the answer in the drop box.

By definition, the y-intercept is the value of y when x=0. Just set x=0 in the equation and solve for y.

Hence 3(0)+6y=90 or 6y=90. This gives y=90/6=15. The point of intercept of the y-axis is (0,15).

To get the x-intercept, set y= 0 in the equation and solve for x.

3x+6(0)=90 or 3x=90. This gives x=90/3=30.

The point of intercept of the x-axis is (30,0).

Hence 3(0)+6y=90 or 6y=90. This gives y=90/6=15. The point of intercept of the y-axis is (0,15).

y = x -3

This is a linear problem- so the usual way to solve the graph would be to solve where x = 0 and y= 0

if you use the format y = slope (m) * x + y intercept (b)- you would set y = 0

at that point it would be 0 = x -3 x = 3 Therefore where y = 0, x = 3. In a graph, that would point to the coordinate (3,0) for the x-intercept. To find the y-intercept, you'd set x = 0 at that point, you'd have the y-intercept being (0,-3)

so if y = 1, x would be 4; if y = 2, x = 5, and so on

Have you graphed the equation? Are you asking someone to solve and give you the answer or tell you how to use your software?
