Intercepts
The x-intercept is the point where the line crosses the x-axis. It is found by setting y = 0and solving the resulting equation. The y-intercept is the point where the line crossesthe y-axis. It is found by setting x = 0 and solving the resulting equation.May be graphed on the x, y plane as this equation:y = mx + bThis equation is called the slope-intercept form for a line.The graph of this equation is a straight line.The slope of the line is m.The line crosses the y-axis at b.The point where the line crosses the y-axis is called the y-intercept.The x, y coordinates for the y-intercept are (0, b).
Example: 1
Graph the equation x - 2y = 4.Solution:To find the x-intercept, set y = 0. This yields x - 2 0 = 4, or x = 4. So the x-intercept is(4,0).To find the y-intercept, set x = 0. This yields 0 - 2y = 4, or y = - 2. So the y-intercept is (0,- 2). Plotting these two points and connecting them with a straight lineyields
Example: 2
Find the x and y intercepts of the equation 3x + 4y = 12.Solution:To find the x-intercept, set y = 0 and solve for x.
 
 
3x + 4( 0 ) = 123x + 0 = 123x = 12x = 12/3x = 4To find the y-intercept, set x = 0 and solve for y.3( 0 ) + 4y = 120 + 4y = 124y = 12y = 12/4y = 3Therefore, the x-intercept is ( 4, 0 ) and the y-intercept is ( 0, 3 ).
