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

Jun 19, 2018

color(indigo)(" x-intercept " = a = 2, " y_intercept " = b = -8

#### Explanation:

$\text{Intercept form of an equation is } \frac{x}{a} + \frac{y}{b} = 1$

$4 x = y + 8$

$4 x - y = 8$

$\frac{x}{2} - \frac{y}{8} = 1$

$\frac{x}{2} + \frac{y}{- 8} = 1$
