# How do you identify the x and y intercepts by looking at a graph?

Feb 5, 2015

The x-intercept is where the graph hits the x-axis and the y-intercept is where the graph hits the y-axis.

Example:

graph{y=2x+4 [-14.23, 14.25, -7.12, 7.11]}

In this example the x-intercept is located at $\left(- 2 , 0\right)$ and the y-intercept is located at $\left(0 , 4\right)$
