Algebra: Check please!!!  MathMate, Friday, May 13, 2011 at 12:20pm
They are both incorrect.
To find the xintercept of the line
L : ax + by + c = 0
you would set y=0, (that is, where the line intersects the xaxis) and solve for x in :
ax + b(0) + c =0
To find the yintercept, you would similarly set x=0, where L intersects the yaxis, and solve for y:
a(0) + by + c =0
Try the problems using the above methods and post your answers for checking if you wish.
