# How do you find the x and y intercept given g(x) = 54x - 1?

Nov 11, 2015

$y = - 1$
$x = \frac{1}{54}$.

#### Explanation:

$g \left(x\right) = 54 x - 1$.
Let $g \left(x\right)$ be $y$. So,
$y = 54 x - 1$.
When we find the $y$ intercept, we know that $x$ is 0, so,
$y = 54 \left(0\right) - 1$,
$y = - 1$.
When we find the $x$ intercept, we know that $y$ is 0, so,
$0 = 54 x - 1$. We solve for $x$, so,
$54 x = 1$,
$x = \frac{1}{54}$.
