## anonymous one year ago What is the x-intercept of the line with the equation

1. anonymous

$8x-\frac{ 1 }{ 3 }y=16$

substitute 0 for y first.

4. anonymous

x intercept can be found by subbing in 0 for y

5. anonymous

so i knoew how to do the problem it is just there is a fraction in the way

6. anonymous

7. anonymous

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

8. anonymous

0 * (stuff ) = 0

9. anonymous

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

10. anonymous

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?

11. anonymous

yeah.

12. anonymous
