# How do you find the x and y intercepts for y =8/9x – 8?

Mar 30, 2016

$y = - 8$
$x = 9$

#### Explanation:

when u want to find y-intercept, let $x = 0$
$y = \frac{8}{9} \left(0\right) - 8$

$y = - 8$

when u want to find x-intercept, let * $y = 0$ *

$0 = \frac{8}{9} x - 8$

$8 = \frac{8}{9} x$

$72 = 8 x$

$9 = x$
