Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So to if you wanted to find the x intercept, then y would have to equal zero, so it would be like  6(0). Then all you do is solve for x. Same as y. Does that make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, the values are x and y, y has to be put at zero to solve for x. so you would have 3x  6(0) = 12, then you know that  6(0) = 0, so all you have is 3x = 12, then you have to solve for x to find out what the x intercept is.
