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

Apr 17, 2018

The $x$-intercept is at $\left(- 1 , 0\right)$ and the $y$-intercept is at $\left(0 , 4\right)$.

#### Explanation:

To find the $x$-intercept, set $y = 0$ and solve for $x$.

$0 = 4 x + 4$

$4 x = - 4$

$x = - 1$

To find the $y$-intercept, set $x = 0$ and solve for $y$.

$y = 4 \left(0\right) + 4 = 4$
