# How do you find the x and y intercepts for #3x+2y=1#?

##### 2 Answers

x-intecept =

#### Explanation:

If you write the equation as follows :

And compare it to the slope intercept form of linear equations,

You find that y-intercept is

And If you do this :

Here, the x - intercept is

See in the graph:

graph{3x + 2y = 1 [-1.199, 1.202, -0.599, 0.601]}

Intercept on

#### Explanation:

There are two ways of doing this.

**One** - If a line has intercepts

Now we can write

as

Hence, intercept on

**Two** - We can find

Putting

Hence, intercept on

graph{3x+2y=1 [-2.532, 2.47, -0.96, 1.54]}
