# How do you find the x and y intercepts for y= -2x + 4?

Apr 26, 2018

y-intercept (c)$= 4$
$x = 2$

#### Explanation:

The y-intercept is easily found by $y = m x + c$. In this equation, the y-intercept is 4.

To find $x$, equate the equation to 0 and solve for $x$:

$y = - 2 x + 4$
$0 = - 2 x + 4$
$2 x = 4$
$x = \frac{4}{2}$
$x = 2$
