To find either of the intercepts, we need to put the other intercept equal to zero. If the equation is in y = mx + b form, the value of y intercept would be equal to b and the value of x intercept would be y/m. But if the equation is not in such form, intercepts can be determined by plugging in 0. Practicing identify x and y intercepts Problems is the best way to improve students' understanding of concepts related to line intercepts.
These problems can be discussed by the teacher in the classroom to enhance students’s knowledge. You can also try our Identify X- And Y-Intercepts Worksheet and Identify X- And Y-Intercepts Quiz as well for a better understanding of the concepts.
