### How do you find the x and y intercepts?

Slope and
y-intercept
In the general equation of the line, y=mx+b, the slope is m and the
y-intercept is b.
You can find the y-intercept for a linear equation in any form
by setting x to zero and solving for y. Similarly, you can find the
x-intercept by setting y to zero and solving for x.
In the above general equation, the x-intercept is -b/m.
