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 slope-intercept form.

5x+6y = 150

6y = 150-5x

y = 25-(5/6)x

The y-intercept occurs when x=0:

y = 25-(5/6)*0

(0, 25)

The x-intercept occurs when y=0:

0 = 25-(5/6)x

25 = (5/6)x

x=30

(30,0)
