# How do you find x and y intercepts of 3x – y = 9?

Jul 21, 2016

x intercept is x =3 ; y intercept is y = -9

#### Explanation:

In the Equation 3x - y = 9
x intercept is when y = 0
So by putting y = 0 in the above equation
we get 3x = 9
Hence x = 3

y intercept is when x = 0
So by putting x = 0 in the above equation
we get -y = 9
Hence y = -9
