Tell how you would identify the intercepts for the graph of the equation:

3x + 6y = 18

I'm not exactly sure how you would find the intercepts from this equation.

Thanks!

**Reiny**, Thursday, December 18, 2008 at 5:11pmIf they are written in the form you have, it is often very easy to find

remember to find the x-intercept you let y=0 and to

find the y-intercept you let the x=0

of course letting some variable equal to zero makes that term disappear.

so to let x=0, block out the x term with your little finger, what do you see?

6y = 18, then y = 3

for the x-intercept, block out the y-term with your little finger and ...

x = 6

this works really neat if the x and y coefficients both divide evenly into the constant
