## Khandi Group Title Find the x and y intercepts 1.) 4y-8=2x 2 years ago 2 years ago

1. hartnn

To get x-intercept put y=0 in the equation to get y-intercept put x=0 in the equation

2. Khandi

can you help me do it and explain each step

3. hartnn

4y-8=2x FOR x-INTERCEPT, PUT y=0 in that, what u get ?

4. Khandi

|dw:1352781110121:dw| that is what i got

1.) 4y-8=2x Add 8 4y = 8 + 2x Subtract 2x 4y - 2x = 8 Divide by 8 $\frac{y}{2} + \frac{x}{-4} = 1$ This is called the "Intercept Form". The answers are staring at you.

6. hartnn

-8=2x so x= -8/2 = ?

7. tkhunny

You have it. Now the other?

8. Khandi

-4

9. Khandi

hartnn

10. hartnn

that is correct.

11. tkhunny

12. hartnn

4y-8=0 4y=8 y=?

Now go take a look at that Intercept Form and see if anything looks interesting - particularly the denominators.

15. hartnn

thats correct. any more doubts ?
