How do you find the intercepts for 4y=2x-10?

Oct 29, 2015

The y intercept is $\frac{- 5}{2}$ and the x intercept is 5

Explanation:

For the intercepts,

For y-intercept, you replace the value of x as 0 so,

4y = 2.0 -10

4y= -10

y=$- \frac{10}{4}$

So, y = $- \frac{5}{2}$

Similarly, when y = 0

4.0 =2x -10

0= 2x -10

2x=10

So x= 5

Therefore the y intercept is $\frac{- 5}{2}$ and the x intercept is 5
