-4x+9y=-36

FIND THE X AND Y INTERCEPT AND GRAPH THE EQUATION PLOTTING THE INTERCEPTS

  • ALGEBRA -

    The x-intercept of a line is the point at which the line crosses the x axis. ( i.e. where the y value equals 0 )

    In this case :

    - 4 x + 9 * 0 = - 36

    - 4 x = - 36 Divide both sides by -4

    x = - 36 / - 4 = 9

    x - intercept point (9,0)


    The z-intercept of a line is the point at which the line crosses the z axis. ( i.e. where the x value equals 0 )

    In this case >

    - 4 * 0 + 9 y = - 36

    9 y = - 36 Divide both sides bz 9

    y = - 36 / 9 = - 4

    y i intercept point ( 0,-4)
