Thank you. I stayed up late, but I still can't figure this out. Please help! Thank you, again.

**MathMate**, Monday, January 3, 2011 at 6:17amIf you rearrange the equation to the standard form:

y=mx+b

then b is the y-intercept.

The x-intercept can be found by setting y=0, or

mx+b=0

x=-b/m

To illustrate the point,

-4x+y=14 can be rewritten as

y=4x+14

So the y-intercept is 14, and the x-intercept is -14/4=-7/2
