## kieraoverton 3 years ago 2x-y-6=0 find the x and y-intercepts

1. hal_stirrup

what do you know?

2. kieraoverton

so far this is what I've done y+2x-6=0

3. kieraoverton

idk how to start

4. ShirohxD

when you solve for x and y intercepts you substitute the other variable with 0 so if you were to solve for x you would replace y with 0 and if you were to solve for y you would replace x with 0

5. zzr0ck3r

when x is 0 we have -y-6 = 0 or y = -6 so the y inttercept at (0,-6) when y = 0 we have 2x-6 = 0or x = 3 so the x intercept is (3,0)

6. hal_stirrup

ok thats cool. lets see. first what would be the best way the formula should be in graph . ??

7. zzr0ck3r

note: y intercept is when x is zero and x intercept is when y is 0

8. kieraoverton

yea, ok. thank you everyone. I apreciate it

9. hal_stirrup

guys concept first before solving. !!!

10. kieraoverton

a little too late for that... I always work the problem out myself anyways though

11. hal_stirrup

look think of what are you trying to get first and then go about learning the mechanical side of it.

12. hal_stirrup

good luck.

13. kieraoverton

yea

14. zzr0ck3r

I like to se it done, and then I can get the concept.... its fine.

15. kieraoverton

exactly what I'm doing...

16. hal_stirrup

so where is the concept ?

17. zzr0ck3r

read up. no need to repeat

18. zzr0ck3r

note: y intercept is when x is zero and x intercept is when y is 0

19. kieraoverton

everybody doesn't learn the same ways so relax

20. hal_stirrup

no nothing up ??

21. zzr0ck3r

its fine, if peole dont want to learn(not saying you dont) we cant force them to. I understnad what your saying, and if they ask the same sort of question over and over then Im with you. but this is not the case so far here.

22. zzr0ck3r

note: y intercept is when x is zero and x intercept is when y is 0 ^^^^^^^^^^^ this was all up...

23. zzr0ck3r

its ok man

24. kieraoverton

i actually worked the problem out instead of just writing what he said so I can understand how he got his answer

25. hal_stirrup

thank you. i think people will be better off if they truly understand whats happing behind the equation than simply to solve it .

26. zzr0ck3r

again she is saying it helped her.

27. ShirohxD

my answer obviously helped the most :D
