# How do you find the x and y intercept of #3x − 5y = −10#?

##### 1 Answer

#### Answer:

Isolate for each variable by subbing in

#### Explanation:

To find the zeros, all we have to do is sub in one variable as

**Solving for #x#-intercept**

This happens when the

#3x - 5y = -10#

#3x - 5(0) = -10#

Now we solve for

#3x - 0 = -10#

#3x = -10#

#x = -10/3#

The

**Solving for #y#-intercept**

This happens when the

#3x - 5y = -10#

#3(0) - 5y= -10#

Now we solve for

#-5y= -10#

#y = (-10)/-5#

#y = 2#

The

We can graph the equation to check our work.

graph{3x - 5y = -10 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

As we can see, our intercepts are correct.

Hope this helps :)
