How to find X and Y intercepts on a line.

Introduction

Introduction: 

Your goal is to be able Image result for graph with a line crossing the x and y interceptto figure out how to find where the X and Y intercepts of a line are located from the Y = Mx + B formula. 

Task

Task: 

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

Grading: 

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.

The page was created to help students understand how to find X and Y intercepts on a graph and to help them remember it to be able to use these things in the future with other assignments.
