Hi, i would like to know if you can answer this question for me Find the x and y intercept fo y = 8x  5 thanks 

The yintercept is the ycordinate of the point where the graph crosses the yaxis. For example in the diagram below the red dot marks the place where the graph crosses the yaxis.
Since this point is on the yaxis its coordinates ate (0,b) for som number b. This point is on the line
Thus
Thus b = 5. Hence the yintercept is 5. Can you now find the xintercept? Penny
