## anonymous 4 years ago Find the x and y intercept : X/3-y/7=5

1. anonymous

put x=0 to get y-intercept put y=0 to get x-intercept

2. anonymous

?

3. Ghazi

$\frac{ x }{ a }+\frac{ y }{ b }=1$ a and b are intercepts ..so divide your equation by 5

4. Ghazi

$\frac{ x }{ 5*3 }+\frac{ y }{ 7*5 }=1$ hope x and y are clear to you

5. Ghazi

i mean x and y intercepts

6. Ghazi

@NatalieLove is it clear?

7. hartnn

@ghazi *minus*

8. Ghazi

@hartnn sorry it is what i was gonna edit lol

9. anonymous

equation line where intercept with x-axis is known as x-intercept and similarly y-intercept

10. anonymous

What is. The solution

11. Ghazi

it is in front of you

12. anonymous

x=15,y=35

13. Ghazi

$\frac{ x }{ 5*3 }+\frac{ y }{ -7*5 }=1...a=5*3,.... b=-7*5$ is that clear
