What is x-intercept? It is such an argument (x-value) where y-value equals 0. In equations you would tell that it is *root* of the equation.

In general formula

Let us take example. You are given slope - it is 2. And you know that your x-intercept is equal 3. Therefore, you know that when

Let us use that information. You know that you may write every linear function like that:

Let us insert values:

Our unknown is

And after all, we must insert our
