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

Jun 22, 2018

x-intercept = y-intercept = 4

#### Explanation:

Intercept form of linear equation is $\frac{x}{a} + \frac{y}{b} = 1$

Where a & b are the x & y intercepts.

Given equation is $x + y = 4$

$\frac{x}{4} + \frac{y}{4} = 1$

Hence x-intercept = y-intercept = 4
