# What are the intercepts of 2x-11y=4?

Jul 24, 2016

$x = 2$
$y = - \frac{4}{11}$

#### Explanation:

$2 x - 11 y = 4$
$x$-intercept is when $y = 0$
So by putting $y = 0$ in the above equation we get
$2 x - 11 \left(0\right) = 4$
or
$2 x = 4$
or
$x = 2$ --------Ans$1$
and
$y$-intercept is when $x = 0$
So by putting $x = 0$ in the above equation we get
$2 \left(0\right) - 11 y = 4$
or
$- 11 y = 4$
$y = - \frac{4}{11}$ ---------Ans$2$
