 Question 84815: I have a question that states: Find the x- and y-intercepts of the graph of the equation 1/4x=2. How do I work this problem?Answer by Spec80(9)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Ok, so your equation looks like Looking at this equation, it is clear that we do not have a y in it, which means that there is no y intercept. When we have just an x, it is stating that we have a vertical line at some x intercept on the graph. To find the x intercept, what we need to do is solve for x in your equation. So to do that we would multiply each side by 4, so the equation would look like this: and this will leave you with: So this means the x intercept is at (8,0) where x=8.
