# What are the intercepts of #7x-9y=8#?

The x-intercept is

The y-intercept is

Intercepts are points where a graph crosses the x and y axis.

For a linear equation, like your problem, it is very easy to locate these two points. First the x-intercept can be found by substituting "0" in place of the "y" in your equation.

In the same way, you can calculate the y-intercept by substituting "0" in for the "x" variable in the equation.

To find the intercepts of the equation 7x - 9y = 8:

- To find the x-intercept, set y = 0 and solve for x.
- To find the y-intercept, set x = 0 and solve for y.

x-intercept: 7x - 9(0) = 8 7x = 8 x = 8/7

y-intercept: 7(0) - 9y = 8 -9y = 8 y = -8/9

Therefore, the x-intercept is (8/7, 0) and the y-intercept is (0, -8/9).
