1/2x  3y = 8
2 Answer

1. User Answers eternal3fear
x intercept is when y = 0
so 1/2 x  0 = 8
solving for x
1/2 x = 8
multiply both sides by 2
x = 16 is the y intercept 
2. User Answers apologiabiology
so first make it into slope intercept form y=mx+b
1/2x3y=8
subtract 1/2x from both sides
3y=81/2x
multiply both sides by 1
3y=1/2x8
divide both sides by 3
y=1/6x8/3
the x intercept is when y=0
so set y to zero
0=1/6x8/3
add 8/3 to both sides
8/3=1/6x
multiply both sides by 6
16=x
the x intercept is 16
