# How do you find the x and y intercept of y=2x+24?

Jan 29, 2017

$\text{x-intercept "=-12," y-intercept } = 24$

#### Explanation:

To find the intercepts.

• " let x=0, in the equation, to find y-intercept"

• " let y=0, in the equation, to find x-intercept"

$x = 0 \to y = 0 + 24 \to y = 24 \leftarrow \textcolor{red}{\text{y-intercept}}$

$y = 0 \to 2 x + 24 = 0 \to 2 x = - 24$

$\Rightarrow x = \frac{- 24}{2} = - 12 \leftarrow \textcolor{red}{\text{x-intercept}}$
