# How do you find the x and y intercepts for y = -2x + 6?

Jan 5, 2016

#### Answer:

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

#### Explanation:

By inserting 0 in for $x$ and solving you will get the y-intercept. By inserting 0 in for $y$ and solving you will get the x-intercept.
