i would first change this to y=mx+b to get your y ,and then do the same thing and solve for x to get your x intercept

4x + 6y = 96 =>4x + 6y 96= 0 xint = c/a = (96/4) = 24 yint =c/b = (96/6) = 16

I would start with setting y to 0 to get x 4x+0=96 divide both sides by 96 x=24 Do the same for y

general form : ax+by+c=0 Slope = a/b xint = c/a yint =c/b

If you divide both sides by 96 and simplify, you get x/24 + y/16 = 1. This is the interceptintercept form. The xintercept is at (24,0), and the y intercept is at (0, 16).

To find xintercept put y=o you will get xintercept will be 24 ..........and to find yintercept put x=0 in this way you will get yintercept is 16. [4(0)+6y=96 in this way 6y=96 & y=16] you wil get (0,16) [4x+6(0)=96 in this way 4x=96 & x=24] you will get(24,0)
