How do you find the x and y intercepts for #3x+y=6#?
The x-intercept is the point at which the graph crosses the x-axis. Therefore, the y-coordinate at this point is zero. Knowing this, we can plug in
So, the x-intercept is at
Likewise, the y-intercept is the point at which the graph crosses the y-axis, and therefore the x-coordinate will be
So, the y-intercept is at
