Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To find xintecepts, you let y = 0 and solve for x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but how would i do that if there's no y in the equation??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is 3x = 10 the complete equation?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then if you solve that, you get x = 10/3, which is a vertical line. It will pass thru the xaxis at (10/3, 0) and it will never cross thru the yaxis, so it has no yintercept

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok i see that point. but it tells me to find the two points. and all this is just confusing..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You would just have to say none, or does not exisit for yintercept

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok. i'll try that out.. thank you so much for your help... i appreciate it very much

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Does it specifically ask for x and yintercept? or just 2 pts on the line?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i just tried that answer.. and it came up wrong and now they gave me a different question.. now it's 4x=4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that's different.....if it's a vertical line x = 10/3, then no matter what y value you have, the xvalue is ALWAYS 10/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, same thing....now, what does x = ?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the equation just reads 4x=4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now if you solve, you get x = 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah, I meant if you solved for x.....so the equation is x = 1. Now matter what the yvalue is, x ALWAYS = 1

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so, use the ordered pair (1, any yvalue)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it could be (1, 3) or (1, 10), or (1, 5).....the yvalue doesn't matter
