Intercepts of a Line
When we graph a line, the xintercept and the yintercept are two points
that are often easy to find and use.
Definition â€”
xintercept and yintercept
The xintercept of a line is the point
where the line crosses the xaxis.
The xintercept has the form (a, 0),
where a is a constant.
The yintercept of a line is the point
where the line crosses the yaxis.
The yintercept has the form (0, b),
where b is a constant. 

We can use the graph to find the intercepts of the equation 3x + 2y = 6.
The xintercept is the point (2, 0).
The yintercept is the point (0, 3).
We can use intercepts to graph a line.
