What is the xintercept of the line with equation 2y + 3x = 24?
What is the xintercept and how do I find it? I have to show work. Thank you!

in finding the xintercept let y = 0 in the equation and solve for x
so what do you get for x?

so you get... 3x = 24... so x = 8!!!
Yay!!! thanks soooo much for answering all my questions! =]=]=]
