# How do you find the x and y intercepts of 3x + 5y = 15?

Jul 21, 2016

x intercept is x = 5 and y intercept is y = 3

#### Explanation:

x intercept of Equation 3x + 5y = 15
x intercept happens when y = 0
So by putting value of y = 0 in above equation we get
3x=15 or x = 5

y intercept of Equation 3x + 5y = 15
y intercept happens when x = 0
So by putting value of x = 0 in above equation we get
5y = 15 or y = 3
