What are the intercepts of : #8y= - 2x - 9#? Algebra Graphs of Linear Equations and Functions Intercepts and the Cover-Up Method 1 Answer Logan · Tony B Apr 9, 2016 #x# intercept: #(-9/2, 0)# #y# intercept: #(0, -9/8)# Explanation: #x# intercepts where #y=0# Therefore, substitute #y=0# and solve for #x#. #0=-2x-9# #9=-2x# #-9/2=x# Therefore, #x# intercept at #(-9/2, 0)# #y# intercepts where #x=0# Therefore, substitute #x=0# and solve for #y#. #8y=-9# #y=-9/8# Therefore, #y# intercept at #(0, -9/8)# Answer link Related questions How do you use the cover-up method to solve for the x and y intercept?
