# How do you graph x-4y=16 using intercepts?

Feb 2, 2018

The two graph interception points with axis are $\left(0 , - 4\right)$ and $\left(16 , 0\right)$

#### Explanation:

All points in x axis are like $\left(x , 0\right)$
All points in y axis are $\left(0 , y\right)$. Thus
Putting this values in function definition formula, we obtain
$x = 0$ then $- 4 y = 16$, $\to y = - 4$ $\to \left(0 , - 4\right)$
$y = 0$ then $x = 16$ $\to \left(16 , 0\right)$

Representing those points in xy axis sistem and drawing a straigh line between them, we graph the function using intercepts
