put x=0 to find Y intercept and Y=0 to find x

slopeintercept form? what does that look like? life already told you 90% of what to do. You just have to do it.

slope intercept form should look like y=mx+b.....where mis ur slope and b is ur y intercept, so:

dw:1357718430099:dw just look when x=0 your gonna get y intercept and when y=0 your gonna get x intercept

similarly you can find for x

for finding x i would do the same as did for y?

# 1 to find the intercepts plug in y= 0 and solve for x 6x 4y = 12 6x4* ( 0 ) = 12 plug in y = 0 6x0 = 12 multiply 4 and 0 to get 0 . 6x=12 simplify x= 12/6 divide both sides by 6 to isolate x x = 2 reduce , so the x  intercepts is ( 2, 0 ) ================= Now look here , y  intercept ,o find the intercepts plug in x= 0 and solve for y 6x4y= 12 start with the given equation. 6* (0) 4y = 12 plug in x = 0 04y = 12 multiply 6 and 0 to get 0 . 4y = 12 simplify y= 12/4 divide both sides by 4 to isolate y. y= 3 reduce. SO therefore the Y  intercepts is ( 0. 3 ) .

Graph of y=3x+2 through the point (0,2) and we can see that the point lies on the line. Since we know the equation has a slope of 3 and goes through the point (0,2), this verifies our answer. If this helped , Medal me ..
