Why haven't you found the x intercepts? Do you know that x-intercepts occur when y = 0?
I solved the answers for the following. Although, I do not know exactly how to grasp the concept of the x-intercept? I don't know what x-intercept is.
The equation has the x-intercept of ___ and the y-intercept of ___. It defines the straight line of ___.
My answers are:
x-intercept =
y-intercept = -9/8
Straight Line of Slope = -3/4.
The equation has the x-intercept of ___ and the y-intercept of ___. It defines the straight line of ___.
My answers are:
x-intercept =
y-intercept = -21/73
The Slope is = -45/73
The equation has the x-intercept of ___ and the y-intercept of ___. It defines the straight line of ___.
My answers are:
x-intercept =
y-intercept = 28/37
The Slope is = 26/37
Prove It is correct. The x-intercept is simply where y=0.
Or, think of it this way... the x-intercept is where that line passes through (or intercepts) the x-axis. At that point, y must be zero.
The y-intercept works pretty much the same way. It's the point where the line passes through (or intercepts) the y-axis. And at that point, x must be zero.
Finding either intercept then just becomes a matter of knowing what is zero and setting that value to zero in the equation.
