# How do you find the intercepts of the line x-y=11?

Intercept on $x$-axis is - 11 and intercept on $y$-axis is $- 11$.
Intercept on $x$-axis is formed where $y = 0$, hence putting $y = 0$ in $x - y = 11$, we get $x = 11$. Hence, intercept on $x$-axis is $11$.
Intercept on $y$-axis is formed where $x = 0$, hence putting $x = 0$ in $x - y = 11$, we get $- y = 11$ or $y = - 11$. Hence, intercept on $y$-axis is $- 11$.
