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

Mar 12, 2018

y-intercept $\left(0 , - 4\right)$
x-intercept $\left(2 , 0\right)$

#### Explanation:

Given

$y = 2 x - 4$

y-intercept

At $x = 0$

$y = 2 \left(0\right) - 4$
$y = - 4$
$\left(0 , - 4\right)$

x-intercept

At $y = 0$

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

$\left(2 , 0\right)$
