Example Question #1 : X Intercept And Y Intercept

What is the x-intercept and y-intercept of:

Possible Answers:

x-intercept = 1

y-intercept = -2

x-intercept= 4

y-intercept= -8

x-intercept=-8

y-intercept=4

x-intercept=2

y-intercept=-4

Correct answer:

x-intercept= 4

y-intercept= -8

Explanation:

The x-intercept is the value of x that will result in the y value equalling zero and the y-intercept is the y value that results when the x equals zero.

Therefore we replace x with zero to find the y-intecerpt.

Now we replace the y with a zero and find our x-intercept

Example Question #1 : X Intercept And Y Intercept

What is the y-intercept and x-intercept of the function:

Possible Answers:

x-intercept=-10

y-intercept=10

x-intercept=-1

y-intercept=2

x-intercept=-12

y-intercept=12

x-intercept=12

y-intercept=12

Correct answer:

x-intercept=-12

y-intercept=12

Explanation:

To find the x and y intercept of the function we need to do algebraic opperations first and then plug in zero for x to find the y-intercept and plug in zero for y to find the x-intercept.

 

y-intercept

x-intercept

Example Question #2 : X Intercept And Y Intercept

Example Question #5 : X Intercept And Y Intercept

Define .

Give the -coordinate of the -intercept of the graph of  (nearest hundredth).

Possible Answers:

The graph of  has no -intercept.

Correct answer:

The graph of  has no -intercept.

Explanation:

Evaluate :

A negative number does not have a real even-numbered root, so  is not a real number. Therefore, the graph of  has no -intercept.
