Find the x- and y-intercepts of the graph of the equation. y = 8 − 3x

y-8-3

#1

Find the x- and y-intercepts of the graph of the equation. (If an answer does not exist, enter DNE.) y = 8 − 3x

Answer:

This is a linear equation written in slope- intercept form (y = mx + b) where
m (the slope) = -3 and b ( the y-intercept) = 8. Since it is linear it will have both a x intercept and a y intercept.
Y- intercept (aka b)= 8
X- intercept = 8/3
