# How do you find the x and y intercepts of 2x+5y-10=0?

Apr 6, 2017

You have to let one be 0

#### Explanation:

To do find the intercept you have to let one of them = 0 and do algebra

For the X intercept let y = 0
For the Y intercept let X = 0

X Intercept

$2 x + 5 y - 10 = 0$
$2 x + 5 \left(0\right) - 10 = 0$
$2 x - 10 + 10 = 0 + 10$
$2 x$ $/ 2 = \frac{10}{2}$
$x = 5$

Do the same for y and you are done!
