CLUE: To find x-intercept y has to be = 0 To find y-intercept take x=0 Okay? :)

@jerryjjoby Did you understand what I did?

Great. So like someone said above, we need to think about what it means for something to be an intercept. In this case, the x-intercept is when the y-value is 0, so we plug in y=0 to the equation of the line and solve for x. So what do you get?

i got x=-4
OakTree
  • OakTree
Right. So our x-intercept is -4. Likewise, can you figure out the y-intercept?

y=0
OakTree
  • OakTree
Not quite. We would set the x-value to 0 and then solve for y. Do you see why?
anonymous
  • anonymous
my bad is it y=-4/3.
OakTree
  • OakTree
Right. So now to graph, it's really, really easy. We just plop down points at -4/3 on the y-axis and at -4 on the x-axis and connect the dots!
