posted by Cheryl on .
1. Find the xintercept and the yintercept of 8x  2y = 24.
a. x = 7, y = 2
b. x = 4, y = 14
c. x = 3, y = 12
d. x = 7, y = 2
answer: d
2. Find the x and y intercept of the line 2x + 3y = 18.
a. xintercept is 18, yintercept is 18.
b. xintercept is 6, yintercept is 9.
c. xintercept is 2, yintercept is 3.
d. xintercept is 9, yintercept is 6.
answer: b

1. The y intercept is when x is zero. Exactly how did you figure y=2 as that point?
