Please help!!Found 2 solutions by haileytucki, rfer:Answer by haileytucki(390)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!8x-2y=16 To find the x-intercept, substitute in 0 for y and solve for x. 8x-2(0)=16 Multiply -2 by each term inside the parentheses. 8x+0=16 Remove the 0 from the polynomial; adding or subtracting 0 does not change the value of the expression. 8x=16 Divide each term in the equation by 8. (8x)/(8)=(16)/(8) Simplify the left-hand side of the equation by canceling the common factors. x=(16)/(8) Simplify the right-hand side of the equation by simplifying each term. x=2 To find the y-intercept, substitute in 0 for x and solve for y. 8(0)-2y=16 Multiply 8 by each term inside the parentheses. 0-2y=16 Combine all similar expressions. -2y=16 Divide each term in the equation by -2. -(2y)/(-2)=(16)/(-2) Simplify the left-hand side of the equation by canceling the common factors. y=(16)/(-2) Solve the equation. y=-8 These are the x and y intercepts of the equation 8x-2y=16. x=2, y=-8 Answer by rfer(12662)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!x int (2,0) y int (0,-8)
