# What are the intercepts of 6x+22y=4?

Dec 19, 2015

$x = \frac{2}{3} , y = \frac{2}{11}$

#### Explanation:

Finding the $y$ intercept

Set $x = 0$ and solve for $y$

$6 \left(0\right) + 22 y = 4$
$22 y = 4$

Divide both sides by 22

$y = \frac{4}{22}$

Simplify

$y = \frac{2}{11}$

Finding the $x$ intercept

Set $y = 0$ and solve for $x$

$6 x + 22 \left(0\right) = 4$
$6 x = 4$

Divide both sides by 6

$y = \frac{4}{6}$

Simplify

$y = \frac{2}{3}$
