Find the x and y intercepts for each equations. What is the x and y intercepts?
y= 2x + 8

The xintercept is the value of x when y=0.
Thus, xintercept is obtained by solving:
0=2x+8, or x=4
Similarly, the yintercept can be obtained from
y=2(0)+8, or y=8
So the intercepts are (4,0),(0,8).
The equation can also be written in the intercept form:
x/4 + y/8 = 1
