# How do you find the x and y intercepts of -x-y=6?

Jan 20, 2017

y-intercept $\left(0 , - 6\right)$
x-intercept $\left(- 6 , 0\right)$

#### Explanation:

Given -

$- x - y = 6$

To find the y-intercept, put $x = 0$

$- \left(0\right) - y = 6$
$y = - 6$
$\left(0 , - 6\right)$

To find the x-intercept put $y = 0$

$- x - \left(0\right) = 6$
$- x = 6$
$x = - 6$

$\left(- 6 , 0\right)$
