How do you find the x and y intercepts for #y = 7/8x + 10#?

Answer:

when y = 0

# 0 = (7/8)x + 10 #
#-10 = (7/8)x #
#x = -10(8/7) #
#x = -11 3/7 #

when x = 0

#y= 7/8(0) +10 #
#y= 10#

Explanation:

This is a linear line graph increasing from left to right because #7/8# is a positive gradient.

graph{y=7/8x+10 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

The line will intercept y-axis when the x is 0 and it will intercept x-axis when y = 0.
