# How do you find the x-intercept of the graph represented by the equation 2x - 6y = 12?

Jul 5, 2017

Put zero in for the value of y and solve for x

#### Explanation:

$2 x = 6 y = 12$ put zero in for y : y = 0 at the x intercept.

$2 x - 6 \left(0\right) = 12$ so

$2 x = 12$ divide both sides by 2

$\frac{2 x}{2} = \frac{12}{2}$ which gives

$x = 6$

The x intercept is ( 6,0)
