# How do you find the intercepts for ?

Jun 15, 2015

Assuming you have an equation in terms of variables $x$ and $y$
evaluate for $y$ when $x$ is set to $0$ to get the y-intercept and vise versa for the x-intercept
The y-intercepts are the points where the equation crosses the y-axis; for all point on the y-axis, $x = 0$
