Find the intercept and the x intercept for the equation 5x+6y =150. I just can't seem to figure this out.
Please help me. I am totally grateful for all the help everyone of you have given me. Thank you, it is very much appreciated.

Put the equation in slopeintercept form.
5x+6y = 150
6y = 1505x
y = 25(5/6)x
The yintercept occurs when x=0:
y = 25(5/6)*0
(0, 25)
The xintercept occurs when y=0:
0 = 25(5/6)x
25 = (5/6)x
x=30
(30,0)
