Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1To find y intercept, you want to see where the point is when x=0. To find where the x intercept is, you want to see where the point is when y=0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Denebel, but I do not have a Graph

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You don't need to graph, all you do is: y = 2x  3 To find x intercept, plug 0 in y: 0=2x3.... Solve so you get x=_______ and that is your xintercept. To find y, do the opposite: y=2(0)3 Get y=_______ and that is your yintercept. On a side note, for linear equations, y=mx+b, you would know that b will be your yintercept (see above for explanation).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the xintercept would be \[3\over 2\]
