# What are the intercepts of 52y-12x=5?

Dec 27, 2015

It would be easiest to convert to slope intercept form to find the y intercept

#### Explanation:

52y - 12x = 5
52y = 5 + 12x
y = $\frac{3}{13} x$ + $\frac{5}{52}$

The y intercept is at (0, $\frac{5}{52}$). To find the x intercept, plug in 0 for y.

52(0) - 12x = 5
-12x = 5
x = $- \frac{5}{12}$

The x intercept is a ($- \frac{5}{12}$, 0)

Good continuation!
