To me the X and Y intercepts are were the e line passes through the X line on the graph ( the horizontal line on the graph ) and were the graph line passes through the Y line on the graph ( the virtical line on the graph).

y=1/2x+5

The y intercept is 5

The slope is 1/2 or up 1 and over 2

I will always remember which one is the X intercept because X comes before z in the alphabet and so then that is the one that i look for first.

Equation- y=2x+6

The x intercept in this equation is 2 and the y intercept is 6

I fiund these intercepts because 2 is the x in the equation so that would be the X intercept and 13 in the equation would be the y intercept and thats how i got 13 for the Y intercept.

Anthony,

ReplyDeleteCould you revise this please? I don't think you answered this part of the prompt:

"Make up a linear equation with both x and y in it, then find both the x-intercept and the y-intercept. Include the equation and the intercepts in your post, and also make sure you explain how you found the intercepts."
