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

Jun 24, 2015

x-intercept is 2
y-intercept is 4

#### Explanation:

The x-intercept is the value of $x$ when $y = 0$ for the given equation.
($y = 0$ along the x-axis).

The y-intercept is the value of $y$ when $x = 0$ for the given equation.
($x = 0$ along the y-axis).

This can be seen in its graph. The $x$ intercept is on the $y$ axis, and the $y$ intercept is on the $x$ axis.
