# How do you find the x and y intercepts for x + y = 10?

Feb 1, 2016

The x-intercept is 10.
The y-intercept is 10.

#### Explanation:

$x + y = 10$

The x-intercept is the value of $x$ when $y = 0$.

$x + 0 = 10$

$x = 10$

The y-intercept is the value of $y$ when $x = 0$.

$0 + y = 10$

$y = 10$
