# How do you give ONLY the x-intercept of 6x -3y=-24?

Dec 13, 2016

The point $\left(- 4 , 0\right)$

#### Explanation:

$6 x - 3 y = - 24$

The $x -$intercept is at the point where $y = 0$

$\to 6 x = - 24$

$x = - 4$

Hence the intercept on the $x -$axis is at the point $\left(- 4 , 0\right)$ as can be seen on the graph of $y$ below:
