Find the y-intercept and the x-intercept for the equation.
-6x + y=22
-6x +y=22
-6(0) + y=22
y= (0, 22)
Is this right for y, and how do you get x, I need some help please!!

• Alegebra - ,

Substitute y = 0 for x -intercept and solve for y

• Alegebra - ,

when x = 0, that is the y axis
so
the line hits the y axis when
y = 22
That is the y intercept.
When y = 0, that is the x axis
the line hits the x axis at
-6 x = 22
x - -22/6 = -11/3
That is the x intercept.

so what is the answer for y-intercept? that have to be in pair.

Then the answer for x-intercept must be in pair also.

Hey look, draw a sketch.
The y intercept is where the line hits the y axis and x = 0
Therefore if the y intercept is 22
Then that point is at (0,22)
and
If the x intercept is at x = -11/3
then that point is (-11/3,0)

will somebody help me with this problem.
