Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to find the xintercept of this equation, you'd want to set the y to zero. Likewise, to find the yintercept, you'd want to set the x to zero.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So for example, if you want to find your yintercept, set the equation like this: 5y0=10 ^ Here, we set the x to equal 0. Now, all you need to do is solve for y. Quite simple.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so xintercept is 2 and the y is 10?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1other way around. the yintercept is 10 and the xintercept is 2. But yes, the numbers are correct. Nice job! :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Apply the same rule: \(\color{green}{\ast}\)to find the xintercept, zero the y \(\color{green}{\ast}\)to find the yintercept, zero the x Try it on your own, I'll check your answers

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1alright. So you do understand what I mean by "zeroing" right? Basically, you just replace the offending variable with a zero To find the yintercept, your equation becomes this: 2y+8(0)=14 You can simplify that to become 2y=14 To find the xintercept, your equation becomes this: 2(0)+8x=14 You can simplify that to become 8x=14 Then once both equations are simplified down, all you need to do is solve for x (to find the xintrecept) and solve for y (to find the yintercept)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I can't tell for the x but is the y 7?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the yintercept is 7, that's correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I've already given you the equation to find the xintercept, which is 8x=14 to solve this, divide both sides by 8 to isolate the x 8x=14 /8 /8  x=?? now all you have to do is divide 14 by 8. that is your xintercept. Does that make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right! Just turn that into a fraction. which would be \(\Large\frac{7}{4}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and that is your xintercept. Do you understand now? All you have to do to find your x and y intercepts every single time is to zero the x and y variables in your equation. Hope this makes sense

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for 3x+4= y would the x be 1.3 and the y be 4?
