What are the intercepts of the equation? Graph the equation.

-3x + 4y = -12

A. x-intercept: (4, 0)
y-intercept: (0, –3)

B. x-intercept: (–3, 0)
y-intercept: (0, 4)

C. x-intercept: (4, 0)
y-intercept: (0, –3)

D. x-intercept: (–3, 0)
y-intercept: (0, 4)

I think its c

  1. To get the x-intercept, let y = 0 and solve for x:
    -3x + 4y = -12
    -3x + 4(0) = -12
    -3x = -12
    x = 4
    Thus x-intercept is at (4,0)

    To get the y-intercept, let x = 0 and solve for y:
    -3x + 4y = -12
    -3(0) + 4y = -12
    4y = -12
    y = -3
    Thus y-intercept is at (0,-3)

    hope this helps~ `u`
