Find the x- and y-intercepts of:
60 = 20x-3y
The x-intercept is found by setting y=0 and solving for x.
60 = 20x-3(0)
60 = 20x Divide both sides by 20.
3 = x or x = 3 So the x-intercept is at (3, 0).
Similarly, the y-intercept is found by setting x=0 and solving for y.
60 = 20(0)-3y
60 = -3y Divide both sides by -3.
-20 = y or y = -20 So the y-intercept is at (0, -20)
For the graph, you need only two points and the two intercepts just found will do nicely. Plot these two points on your coordinate graph paper and connect them with a straight line.
