Unformatted text preview: § 3.3 Intercepts Martin-Gay, Beginning Algebra, 5ed 2 Intercepts Intercepts of axes (where graph crosses the axes) Since all points on the x-axis have a y- coordinate of 0, to find x-intercept, let y = 0 and solve for x Since all points on the y-axis have an x- coordinate of 0, to find y-intercept, let x = 0 and solve for y Martin-Gay, Beginning Algebra, 5ed 3 Find the y-intercept of 4 = x – 3 y Let x = 0. Then 4 = x – 3 y becomes 4 = – 3 y Replace x with 0. 4 = – 3 y Simplify the right side. = y D ivide both sides by – 3. 3 4- So the y-intercept is (0, ) 3 4- Intercepts Example: Martin-Gay, Beginning Algebra, 5ed 4 Find the x-intercept of 4 = x – 3 y Let y = 0. Then 4 = x – 3 y becomes 4 = x – 3( ) Replace y with 0. 4 = x Simplify the right side. So the x-intercept is (4,0) Intercepts Example: Martin-Gay, Beginning Algebra, 5ed 5 Graph the linear equation 4 = x – 3 y by plotting intercepts....
