# What are the intercepts of -12x-17y=5?

Y-intercept = $- \frac{5}{17}$ and X-intercept= $- \frac{5}{12}$
$- 12 x - 17 y = 5 \mathmr{and} 17 y = - 12 x - 5 \mathmr{and} y = - \frac{12}{17} \cdot x - \frac{5}{17}$ So y-intercept is $- \frac{5}{17}$ To find x-intercept putting y=0 in the equation we get $- 12 x = 5 \mathmr{and} x = - \frac{5}{12}$ So x-intercept is $- \frac{5}{12}$
