# What are the intercepts of -3x-11y=13?

Oct 11, 2016

$x$-intercept is $- \frac{13}{3}$ and $y$-intercept is $- \frac{13}{11}$

#### Explanation:

You can find the $x$-intercept by putting $y = 0$ in the equation

and $y$-intercept by putting $x = 0$ in the equation

Hence $x$ intercept for $- 3 x - 11 y = 13$ is given by $- 3 x = 13$ or $x = - \frac{13}{3}$

and $y$ intercept for $- 3 x - 11 y = 13$ is given by $- 11 y = 13$ or $y = - \frac{13}{11}$

Hence $x$-intercept is $- \frac{13}{3}$ and $y$-intercept is $- \frac{13}{11}$
