Expert Solution

## Answer to Problem 25RCC

The x intercept is found by keeping y=0 and solve for x and the y intercept is found by keeping x=0 and solve for y .

### Explanation of Solution

The x intercept is the point on the graph where the graph of the line crosses the x -axis

Thus, if set y=0 then x is calculated.

The y intercept is the point on the graph where the graph of line crosses the y -axis.

Thus, if set x=0 then y is calculated.

Therefore, the x intercept is found by keeping y=0 and solve for x and the y intercept is found by keeping x=0 and solve for y .
