What are the x and y intercepts of 2x + 4y = 8 ?

**At the x-intercept, the value of y is zero. To find the x-intercept, just substitute zero in for y.**

2x + 4y = 8

2x + 4(0) = 8 {substituted zero for y}

2x = 8 {multiplied 4 by 0}

x = 4 {divided each side by 2}

**At the y-intercept, the value of x is zero. To find the y-intercept, just substitute zero in for x.**

2x + 4y = 8

2(0) + 4y = 8 {substituted zero for x}

4y = 8 {multiplied 2 by 0}

y = 2 {divided each side by 4}

**The x-intercept is 4.**

The y-intercept is 2.

The y-intercept is 2.
