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

Dec 28, 2015

The linear line $y = x$ goes directly through the origin with a slope of 1.

#### Explanation:

Both the x and the y intercepts is zero

Here is a graph ...

$x = y$

Put $y = 0$
$\implies x = 0$ $x$-intercept

Put $x = 0$
$\implies y = 0$ $y$-intercept

$\implies$ Both $x$ and $y$ intercepts are $0$.
