Find the yintercept and the xintercept for the equation25x+y=15
What is the yintercept?
(Type an ordered pair)
What is the xintercept?
(Type an ordered pair. Type integers or fractions for coordinates.

xintercept occurs at y = 0. thus from the given equation, we set y = 0:
25x + y = 15
25x = 15
x = 3/5
thus xintercept is at (3/5 , 0)
yintercept occurs at x = 0. thus from the given equation, we set x = 0:
25x + y = 15
y = 15
thus yintercept is at (0 , 15)
hope this helps~ :)
