How do you find the x and y-intercept given #y= 4x - 7#?
There is a very standard way to solve such problems. Let us take an equation of a line in standard form:
Firstly, get all the variables to the left-hand side (LHS) and the constant to the right-hand side (RHS). So, we get:
Now divide the whole equation by the constant on the RHS (note that this does not change the equation), and write it in the form below:
In this form, the term below
Let us turn our attention to the question given. We have:
Thus the x-intercept is
