Is it possible for the xintercept and the yintercept of a straight line to be at the same point? Why or why not?

What are the x and y intercepts of a line that runs through the origin?

... This is "college" algebra ? Wow.

Why do you have to make degrading comments all the time? Either help or don't.

This is the question...is it possible and why?

And yes this is College Algebra...some of us are better at things other than math. I'm doing great after being graduated for 17 years, a 9 year old, a husband and a full time job. I'm loving my A average thank you.

Agreed, Kelly. Good for you. I think what Reiny was getting at is at the origin the point is (0,0) so it is possible. Not 100% positive though.

The height of a triangle is 3 in. less than 5 times the length of its base. The area is 81 sq.ins. Find the lenght of is base and the height of the triangle.
