Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when y= 0, what does x have to be? when x = 0 what does y have to be?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there is only one answer :) when y = 0 the equation looks like this: 0 = 3x 5 solve for "x" when x = 0 the equation looks like this: y = 3(0) 5 y = 05 y = 5 ; so when x = 0, what does "y" equal?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you begin by plugging in a value of x=0 or y=0 into the equation and solving for the other variable.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x = 0 is usually a good be another more simplistic manner is to get the equation into the form: Ax + By = C y=3x5 become 3x +y = 5 3(0) + y = 5 ; y = 5 (0,5) AND 3x + 0 = 5 3x = 5 x = 5/3...... (5/3,0)
