Quandaries and Queries 

Hi.
I am a student in grade 10. If you could email me back that would be greatly appreciated. Hi,
The intercepts of a graph are the points where the graph crosses the axes. A point where the graph crosses the xaxis is called an xintercept and a point where the graph crosses the yaxis is called a yintercept. Points on the xaxis are points with ycordinate equal to zero, that is they are points of the form (a,0) for some number a. Hence, for your equation 2x = 12 x = 2 In a similar way the yintercepts are points on the graph with coordinates x = 0. Thus let x = 0 and solve
To draw the graph of this line,use a ruler and draw a line through (2,0) and (0,4).
