    below the axis it starts negative numbers, so what would cause his balance to be negative?

    all an intercept is is the point that it crosses the axis, if it's a x intercept it means that the x value is 0, if it's the y intercept it means the y value is zero,

    since this problem is based on a bank account the only time that you can have negative money is when you bounce a check. or overdraw your account.

    well the other option is if he had no money in his accoun then it would be zero which would put the y value to zero which is on the x axis.
