What are the intercepts of #-8x-y=-17#?
X-intercept = (
The X-intercept is when Y = 0, so plug in the number 0 for Y to get
-8x - 0 = -17
Simplify to get
-8x = -17
Divide both sides by -8 and you get
Then write as a coordinate, (
For the Y-intercept, X = 0, so plug in the number 0 for X to get.
Divide both sides by -1 to get
y = 17
Then write as a coordinate, (0, 17)
