# How do you find the x and y intercepts for y = 2x?

Jun 9, 2018

Therefore, the x-intercept is at $\left(0 , 0\right)$
Therefore, the y-intercept is also at $\left(0 , 0\right)$

#### Explanation:

We know that the y-intercept is where $x = 0$ and vice versa.

TO FIND THE X-INTERCEPT:
It is where y=0. Therefore, we will plug in 0 for y.
$0 = 2 x$
Dividing both sides by 2, we get:
$x = 0$
Therefore, the x-intercept is at $\left(0 , 0\right)$

TO FIND THE Y-INTERCEPT:
It is where x=0. Therefore, we will plug in 0 for x.
$y = 2 \left(0\right)$
$y = 0$
Therefore, the y-intercept is also at $\left(0 , 0\right)$
