# What is the x-intercept of the line 10x-2y=20?

Jun 23, 2018

$\text{x-intercept } = 2$

#### Explanation:

$\text{to find the intercepts, that is where the line crosses the}$
$\text{x and y axes}$

• " let x = 0, in the equation for y-intercept"

• " let y = 0, in the equation for x-intercept"

$y = 0 \Rightarrow 10 x = 20 \Rightarrow x = 2 \leftarrow \textcolor{red}{\text{x-intercept}}$
graph{(y-5x+10)((x-2)^2+(y-0)^2-0.04)=0 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
