# How do you find the x and y intercepts for y=-3/4x+3?

Apr 26, 2018

#### Answer:

We're given the line in slope-intercept form so see the y-intercept is $3$ and setting $y = 0$ we solve for the x-intercept of $4$.

#### Explanation:

For the y-intercept we substitute $x = 0$ and get $y = 3$ or we can just read off $3$ from the equation given in slope-intercept form.

For the x-intercept we substitute $y = 0$ and solve for $x$.

$0 = - \frac{3}{4} x + 3$

$\frac{3}{4} x = 3$

$x = 4$ is the x intercept.
