# What are the intercepts of : 17y= - 32x + 12?

Mar 9, 2018

x-intercept : $= \frac{3}{8}$

y-intercept : $= \frac{12}{17}$

#### Explanation:

X-intercept : When you have a linear equation, the x-intercept is the point where the graph of the line crosses the x-axis.

Y-intercept : When you have a linear equation, the y-intercept is the point where the graph of the line crosses the y-axis.

$17 y = - 32 x + 12$

Let y = 0 or remove y term.

x-intercept : $- 32 x + 12 = 0$ or $32 x = 12$ or $x = \frac{3}{8}$

Let x = 0 or remove x term.

y-intercept : $17 y = 12$ or $y = \frac{12}{17}$
