5. Find the x and y intercepts of each linear equation. Be sure to write your answers as ordered pairs.
y = 3x  6
6y = x + 2
The y intercepts is when x=0
So put in x=0 in each, and solve for y.
The x intercepts is when y=0, put in y=0 and solve for x.
I will be happy to critique your thinking.
y=6 x=2
but for the second one what o I do?
do exactly the same thing, put y=0 and solve for x, on putting then x=0 and solving for y, you may have to divide both sides by six.

Did I do these probelms correctly? Find the intercepts 1. y^2 = x^2  4x y^2 = x(x  4) Y intercepts y^2 = 0(0  4) (0,0) x intercepts 0 = x(x  4) 0 = x  4 4 = x (4,0) 2. y = (x (x + 3))/(3x + 1)^2 y intercetps y = (0(0 + 3))/(3(0)
