When solving for the intercepts, we set the opposite variable to 0. So, if we solve for x, we set y=0. And if we are solving for y, we set x=0

After we find x, plug 0 into x to find the intercept for y.

Ex. y=4x-8

We solve equations by doing the opposite of what the equation says to do, to get x on one side.

Ex. y=4x-8

When solving for the intercepts, we set the opposite variable to 0. So, if we solve for x, we set y=0. And if we are solving for y, we set x=0

After we find x, plug 0 into x to find the intercept for y.

Ex. y=4x-8

We solve equations by doing the opposite of what the equation says to do, to get x on one side.

Ex. y=4x-8

Ex. y=6x^2-24
