# How to find X and Y intercepts on a line.

Introduction

Introduction:

Your goal is to be able to figure out how to find where the X and Y intercepts of a line are located from the Y = Mx + B formula.

Be able to use these steps to find the intercepts on future problems (tests/quizzes). It will make these problems much easier when the intercepts aren't on such basic points such as (3,0).

Process

Steps:

1. Make sure the equation is in Y =Mx + B format, if not put it in that format.

2. Make X = 0, plug a random (but reasonable) number in for Y, solve for Y.

3. Make Y = 0, plug a random (but reasonable) number in for X, solve for X.

Evaluation

Partial credit for partial correct answers, if numbers or variables are accidentally swapped, some credit will we awarded.

Conclusion

Conclusion:

Knowing how to find the intercepts will also help when you have to move graphs/lines. We will also be able to use these steps on future problems, so we need to keep practicing them.

I would like professor Taiebeh Hosseinali for the assignment to create a WebQuest and helping me with the skills I needed in order to create it.
