# What are the intercepts of -13x-9y=25?

Jun 27, 2018

$\text{x-intercept "=-25/13," y-intercept } = - \frac{25}{9}$

#### Explanation:

$\text{to find the intercepts, that is where the graph crosses}$
$\text{the x and y axes}$

• " let x = 0, in the equation for y-intercept"

• " let y = 0, in the equation for x-intercept"

$x = 0 \Rightarrow - 9 y = 25 \Rightarrow y = - \frac{25}{9} \leftarrow \textcolor{red}{\text{y-intercept}}$

$y = 0 \Rightarrow - 13 x = 25 \Rightarrow x = - \frac{25}{13} \leftarrow \textcolor{red}{\text{x-intercept}}$
