# How do you find the x and y intercepts for x + y = 1?

Jun 16, 2018

x-intercept $= 1$, y-intercept $= 1$

#### Explanation:

Intercept form of a linear equation is

$\frac{x}{a} + \frac{y}{b} = 1$ where a is x-intercept & b is y-intercept.

Given $x + y = 1$

$\frac{x}{1} + \frac{y}{1} = 1$ is the intercept form.

$\therefore$ x-intercept $= 1$, y-intercept $= 1$
