How do you find the x and y intercept of 3x+0.5y=6?
I know you set x and y to 0.. and then divide by the other variable's number.
I think?
Could somebody explain how to find the intercepts of this problem?
Thank you

Algebra, finding the intercept, help? 
bobpursley,
x intercept, when y is zero
3x=6
x=2
y intercept,when x is zero
.5y=6
y=12

Allyson,
When is y not 0?

bobpursley,
y is not zero along the line 3x+.5y=6
