# What are the intercepts for y = 5x - 7?

Sep 23, 2015

$\left(0 , - 7\right) \mathmr{and} \left(\frac{7}{5} , 0\right)$

#### Explanation:

To find the y-intercept, let x = 0 and you get $y = - 7$

To find the x-intercept, let y = 0 and you get $x = \frac{7}{5}$

Note that a linear straight line graph of form $y = m x + c$ has gradient m (in this case 5) and y-intercept c (in this case -7)

Graphically :

graph{5x-7 [-20.27, 20.27, -10.13, 10.15]}
