# How do you find the x and y intercept of 7y – x = - 12?

Feb 3, 2017

The x intercept is $y = - \frac{12}{7}$ and the y intercept is $x = 12$

#### Explanation:

You can find the x and y intercepts of any function by calculating what is the value of x when y=0 and the value of y when x=0, respectivey:

$y = 0 \to 7 \cdot 0 - x = - 12 \to x = 12$

$x = 0 \to 7 y - 0 = - 12 \to y = - \frac{12}{7}$
