Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so, y=2(0)3 and 0=2x3..just solve to get the respective coordinates

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1y=3 2x3=0, 2x=3 x=3/2 x=3/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so what are the x intercept as in (x,y)... and the y intercept as in (x,y) coordinates

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1when we want to find the x intercept of a function we let y=0 ie (x,0) im change the function and replacing it with y=5x5 ok as and example so, 0=5x5..we replace y and put 0 we now solve for x 5x5=0 5x5+5=+5 5x=5 we then divide both sides of the equation by 5 to solve for x 5x/5=5/5 x=1..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alright thanks. Do i need to make a graph?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1not always only if the question ask you to...so our x intercept for the given example would be (1,0)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1do u understand the y intecept part...if not i will go it over ok

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It intercepts at 0 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we let the x intercept =0 ie (0,y) and we solve for y...what would be the y intercept for the given example i just give?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes we let x=o and solve for y y=5(0)5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wouldn't that be 0 too?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay. Think i got it now 5*0 = 0 and 0 subtracted by 5 is just negative 5.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes now put it in coordinate form..(x,y) we get..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thanks. I suck at math. XD

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no problem but remember that was the intercepts for the example i give not for the problem you give ok

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah totally understand. That's why i try in solve them before i post them unless i really have no clue where to start.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok just to note also in the case of sketching a graph..the x intercept is where the line/curve cuts the x axis on the graph...and the y intercept is where the line/curve cuts the y axis on the graph.
