substitute 0 for y first.

4. texaschic101

x intercept can be found by subbing in 0 for y

5. pinklion23

7. pinklion23

oh right it is 0 ok so then i do.... hold on ......*thinking*

8. Jhannybean

0 * (stuff ) = 0

$8x =16$ divide both sides by 8 and you are done!

10. pinklion23

right so then you get8x/8=x and 16/8=2 so then x=2 then i get 2,0 for the plot on the graph right?
