What are the intercepts of #3x-8y=4#?

2 Answers

Answer:

#3/4# is the x-intercept, and #-2# is the y-intercept

Explanation:

To obtain the intercepts, divide the entire equation by the constant (#-4# here). We get #3/4x-8/4y=1#. The coefficient of #x# is the x-intercept and the coefficient of #y# is the y-intercept.

Answer:

#"x-intercept "=4/3" and y-intercept "=-1/2#

Explanation:

#"to find the intercepts, that is where the graph crosses"#
#"the x and y axes"#

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

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