Intercept is where a line crosses the axis. So, where would you cross the y axis and where would you cross the x axis?
Um im not sure
Graph a line who's Y intercept is NINE and who's x intercept is THREE.
here's a blank xy axis |dw:1442287276968:dw|
`y-intercept is 9` where is that on the blank xy axis?
sorry, if the y intercept is 9, where would that be on the xy axis?
That point is (3,9). The coordinate for an intercept on the y axis is (0, #) and for the x axis is (#, 0).
the y axis is the vertical axis so the y intercept must go on this vertical axis somewhere
Right yeah I get the part that you have to put it on its vertical axis
so you agree that it would be like this, right? |dw:1442287636074:dw|
Yes I agree
that point is one tick below the 10, so on the "9" of the y axis number line
yes I see that
That point is the ordered pair (0,9) |dw:1442287784132:dw|
Okay, so that is the y intercept 9. Now where will the x intercept be?
That is the y axis. The x axis is the horizontal one. Try again.
Very good. Now, connect the dots and you will have your line who's y intercept is 9 and who's x intercept is 3.
AH thanks!! I got it
