# How do you find the intercepts for #-3x-4y=18#?

##### 1 Answer

#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

To find the

Thus, we need to solve

First, we can add

=

or

=

Then, we need to divide both sides by

Simplifying slightly gets you:

which equates to

Now that we have the equation in Standard form, we can look for the intercepts. Conceptually, an

So, simply plug in those values of

Solving for the

Adding

Multiplying both sides by

or:

Solving for the

Canceling out the term with the

It is worthy to notice that the y-intercept of the equation, when put in Standard Form, is simply the term without the
