# How do you find the x intercept for 3y=2x+6?

Nov 5, 2016

The x-intercept is $\left(- 3 , 0\right)$

#### Explanation:

The x-intercept of a function is that to find the coordinates of the point that intersects x-axis that is its ordinate is $\textcolor{b l u e}{y = 0}$

the x-intercept is to find the coordinate of a point$\left(x , 0\right)$
The abscissa=??

$3 \times 0 = 2 x + 6$

$0 = 2 x + 6$

$- 2 x = 6$

$x = - \frac{6}{2}$

$x = - 3$

The x-intercept is the point of coordinates $\left(\textcolor{b l u e}{- 3 , 0}\right)$
