## BabyBoy1 3 years ago What are the x- and y – intercepts of the following equation: y = 4x + 20

1. qpHalcy0n

Here, it's already in slope intercept form (y = mx + b), in this case, the y-intercept is "b". You can get the x-intercept by setting y = 0, and solving for x.

2. BabyBoy1

oh okay!

3. qpHalcy0n

Can you proceed from here?

4. BabyBoy1

(0, 20), (5, 0) (0, 20), (-5, 0) (20, 0), (0, -5) (0, 20), (0, 5) Which one of these would be right..

5. qpHalcy0n

Well, if you understand the process then the answer will be clear. Are you understanding what I said? What is unclear?

6. BabyBoy1

I did but i was still confused lol

7. BabyBoy1

im working on a math course online so i needed the answer.

8. qpHalcy0n

Ok, so can you tell me what the y-intercept is?

9. BabyBoy1

yeaaa the y is 0

10. qpHalcy0n

No, that's incorrect. See here you have an equation in the form y = mx + b. Here, m and b are just numbers (constants). The important thing is that "m" is in front of the 'x' and b is by itself. In this form, the y-intercept is simply, b. So what is b?

lmao 0 idk gahhhh :/
