How do you find the intercepts for #y=2x+6#?
The intercepts of a graph are the points where the graph crosses the 'x' and 'y' axes. To find the intercepts of a graph, you need to find the values of x and y assuming that y = 0 and x = 0, respectively.
The x-intercept is the point where 'y' is 0. So, take the equation and plug in 0 for 'y'.
So, the x-intercept is -3.
The y-intercept is the point where 'x' is 0. So, take the equation and plug in 0 for 'x'.
So, the y-intercept is 6.
