    I know what the answer is (4,0) but why?

    to get x-intercept, put y=0 in line 3x+4y=12

    like hartnn is saying 3x+4y=12 3x+4(0)=12 ... plug in y = 0 3x + 0 = 12 3x = 12 x = 12/3 x = 4 So the x-intercept is the point (4,0)

    to find the y-intercept, just plug in x = 0 and solve for y

    how you can get x=10 when i told you to put x=0 to find y-intercept :O

    you got y=3 then, right ?? and intercepts are of the form (x,y) y co-ordinate comes after comma so, would you like to revise your answer ?

    to find the x-intercept, you plug in y = 0 not x = 0

    to get x-intercept, you need to put y=0, right ?

    x=3 1/2 is correct, but same note again, intercepts are of the form (x,y) x co-ordinate comes before comma so, would you like to revise your answer ?
