# How do you find the x and y intercept of y=-14x+7?

Apr 29, 2018

$x$-int: $x = \frac{1}{2}$

$y$-int: $y = 7$

#### Explanation:

To find the $x$-intercept, we set $y$ equal to zero, and to find the $y$-intercept, we set $x$ equal to zero. Doing that, we get

$0 = - 14 x + 7$

$\implies - 14 x = - 7$

$\implies x = \frac{1}{2}$ (This is our $x$-intercept)

$y = - 14 \left(0\right) + 7$

$y = 7$ (This is our $y$-intercept)

Hope this helps!
