Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Basically, what you do is you change it to y=mx+c first. If we rearrange it like that, it'd look like this: \[y=2x4\] Then you know that the yintercept is 4. To find the xintercept, you make y=0 and solve for x. \[0=2x4\] \[4=2x\] \[x=2\] So the yintercept is 4 and the xintercept is 2.
