# How do you find the x and y intercepts for 4x + 3y = 0?

Jul 25, 2018

Both the x and y intercept are at $\left(0 , 0\right)$

#### Explanation:

To find the x-intercept, plug in $0$ for $y$ and solve for $x$:
$4 x + 3 \left(0\right) = 0$

$4 x = 0$

$x = 0$

Therefore, the $x$ intercept is at $\left(0 , 0\right)$.

Since it is at the origin, that means the $y$ intercept is also $\left(0 , 0\right)$.

Therefore, both the x and y intercept are at $\left(0 , 0\right)$.

Hope this helps!
