What is the xintercept and yintercept of the graph of 4x  8y = 32?
A) xintercept = (0, 4); yintercept = (8, 0)
B) xintercept = (8, 0); yintercept = (0, 4)
C) xintercept = (8, 0); yintercept = (0, 4)
D) xintercept = (0, 4); yintercept = (8, 0)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x intercept is the point where the line intersects the x axis. on the x axis, y =0. so substitute y = 0 in the equation to find the x intercept. similarly substitute x=0 in the equation to find the yintercept.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what does it mean when he says "xintercept" = it means the graph is touching the xaxis so, y=0 hence, substitute 0 (zero) for y in your eqaution and you will find the xintercep (x,0) what does it mean when he says "yintercept" = it means the graph is touching the yaxis so, x=0 hence, substitute 0 (zero) for x in your eqaution and you will find the yintercep (0,y)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Why are you guessing the answer? just substitute y = 0 in your equation and see what you get.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04x  8y = 32? 8y = 32  4x y = 32/(8) 4x/(8) y = 4 + (1/2)x this is you equation. Plug in 0 into X and you'll find the Yintercept (0,y) Plug in 0 into Y and you'll find the Xintercep (x,0)
