# How do you find the x and y intercepts for 2x+y=9?

Nov 13, 2015

X-intercept = $\frac{9}{2}$ and y-intercept = 9

#### Explanation:

Since the line representing the given equation passes through x = 0 and y = 0.
When x = 0,
2X0 +y = 9
y = 9
Hence y -intercept = 9
When y = 0
2x + 0 9
2x = 9
$2 \frac{x}{2}$ = $\frac{9}{2}$
$x$ = $\frac{9}{2}$
Hence x-intercept = $\frac{9}{2}$
