How do you find the x and y intercepts of #4x-5y=20#?
x-intercept = 5; y-intercept = -4
An intercept on an axis is the point where a curve crosses the axis and the distance from the origin is known as intercept
As mentioned it is on a axis, thus the coordinates of the intercept point will be
This being said, to find the intercept from the equation of a line, we just need to put the value of one variable to
So in the equation above:
thus y-intercept is
thus x-intercept is
