What is the x- intercept and y- intercept of y= -(x+2)+4?

Oct 31, 2015

x-intercept =2
y-intercept =2

Explanation:

To find the intercepts,

For $x$- intercept, you replace the value of $y$ as 0

$0 = - \left(x + 2\right) + 4$
$0 = - x - 2 + 4$
$x = 2$

For $y$-intercept, you replace the value of $x$ as 0

$y = - \left(0 + 2\right) + 4$
$y = - 2 + 4$
$y = 2$

So both x and y intercept are 2.
