How do you find the x-intercept and y-intercept, of this line?

8x - 2y = 32

8x - 2y = 32

To find the x-intercept, put 0 in for y:

8x - 2y = 32

8x - 2(0) = 32 {substituted 0 in for y}

8x = 32 {multiplied 2 by 0}

x = 4 {divided both sides by 8}

**x-intercept = 4**.....coordinates are (4,0)

To find the y-intercept, put 0 in for x:

8x - 2y = 32

8(0) - 2y = 32 {substituted 0 in for x}

-2y = 32 {multiplied 8 by 0}

y = -16 {divided both sides by -2}

**y-intercept = -16**.....coordinates are (0,-16)
