## Brookeluda 3 years ago Identify the correct x intercept and y intercept of the equation 4x - 3y = 24. Choices... x intercept = (8, 0); y intercept = (0, 6) x intercept = (-8, 0); y intercept = (0, -6) x intercept = (-6, 0); y intercept = (0, 8) x intercept = (6, 0); y intercept = (0, -8) WHICH ONE?!

1. uhveishuues

well the y intercept is the b when it is in y = mx+b format so subtract 4x on both sides then divide by -3 on both sides

2. uhveishuues

so you should get y = 4/3x-7 or something like that i might now be tots accurate

3. uhveishuues

sorry its 8

4. uhveishuues

y=4/3-8

5. precal

if x = 0 what is y=? that is your y intercept if y=0 what is x=? that is your x intercept

6. uhveishuues

so then just plug in 0 for y and then that is your x intercept

7. uhveishuues

thats actually an easier way of doing it but its whatever

8. ZakaullahUET

x intercept = (6, 0); y intercept = (0, -8)
