Could somebody please give me a second opinion on the correct way to write and explain intercepts.
I have a question which asks me to find the x and y intercepts of a line which I found previously, showing each step of my method.
My coordinates are (-4, -2) and (2, 7)
I worked out my intercepts are (-2.7, 4), so should I say something like;
The x and y intercepts are (-2.7) and (4), where the points corresponding to these are my coordinates as above, or
When x = 0, then ( - 2.7, 0) and when y = 0, then (0, 4), which does not sound right to me because x = 0 then = - 2.7 seems wrong?
