Find the intercept and the x intercept for the equation 5x+6y =150. I just can't seem to figure this out.

Please help me. I am totally grateful for all the help everyone of you have given me. Thank you, it is very much appreciated.

  • Algebra 1 -

    Put the equation in slope-intercept form.

    5x+6y = 150
    6y = 150-5x
    y = 25-(5/6)x

    The y-intercept occurs when x=0:
    y = 25-(5/6)*0
    (0, 25)

    The x-intercept occurs when y=0:
    0 = 25-(5/6)x
    25 = (5/6)x
    x=30
    (30,0)
