Teaching Identify x- and y-intercepts Easily 


  • To find the x- intercept, always set y as 0. 
  • Similarly, to find the y - intercept, set x equivalent to 0. 
  • Further simplify the equation to get either of the intercepts. 

Here is an example to solve a problem on identifying x- and y- intercepts. Let’s look at the given example mentioned below to understand more about the concept. 

Q: Find the y-intercept of the line: y − 9 = 3x


Step 1: To determine y, set x for 0. 



Y - 9 = 3 * 0. 


Step 2: Simplify the equation. 


Y - 9 = 3 * 0 


Y - 9 = 0 

Y = 9.
