# How do you graph using the intercepts for 8x+2y=30?

Mar 22, 2018

This is an equaiton of a straight line. See below

#### Explanation:

The x-axis intercept occurs when $y = 0$, so
subsituting in the above equation:
$x = \frac{30}{8} = 3.75$

The y-axis intercept occurs when $x = 0$, so
subsituting in the above equation:
$y = \frac{30}{2} = 15$
