# Question #59258

##### 2 Answers

See the entire solution explanation below.

#### Explanation:

The equation in the problem is in slope-intercept form. The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:

Where

For this problem:

Therefore:

The slope is:

The y-intercept is:

To find the x-intercept, set

Therefore:

The x-intercept is:

y-int = (0, 100)

slope = 10

x-int = (-10, 0)

#### Explanation:

To find the Y-intercept of a line when it is written in Y-intercept form like it is above, you look at the number without the variable, if you want a technical answer you find it by setting

The slope is found by looking at the coefficient of the x term which in this case is 10.

To find the X-intercept, do the opposite of what you did to find the Y-intercept and set y equal to 0 and solve for x like follows:

Get the terms with x alone on one side and the terms without x on the other side as such

And get x by itself by dividing both sides by 10 to get the answer
