What are the intercepts of #-15y-23x=8#?
This is the equation of a straight line. When the line crosses the x-axis , the corresponding y-coordinate will be zero. By letting y=0 and substituting into equation will give x=intercept.
y = 0 : - 23x = 8
# rArr x = -8/23 #
Similarly for when the line crosses the y-axis. Let x = 0.
x = 0 : - 15y = 8
#rArr y = -8/15 #
