# How do you find the x and y intercepts for -3x + y = 9?

$\left(- 3 , 0\right)$ the intersection of the line with the x-axis
$\left(0 , 9\right)$ the intersection of the line with the y-axis
Set $y = 0$ solve for the value of x. For the x-intercept
Set $x = 0$ solve for the value of y. For the y-intercept
