What is the x-intercept of the line with equation 2y + 3x = 24?

What is the x-intercept and how do I find it? I have to show work. Thank you!

  • Math (Algebra/Pre-Algebra) -

    in finding the x-intercept let y = 0 in the equation and solve for x
    so what do you get for x?

  • Math (Algebra/Pre-Algebra) -

    so you get... 3x = 24... so x = 8!!!
    Yay!!! thanks soooo much for answering all my questions! =]=]=]
