Question

What is the x-intercept for the equation 5x-2y=-4?

2 Answer

  • 5x-2y=-4
    5x-2(0)=-4
    -5x=-4
    x=-4/5, so the x-intercept I'd (0,-4/5). Hope it help!
  • 5x - 2y = -4

    To find the x-intercept, you make y = 0

    So, our equation now looks like this :

    5x - 2(0) = -4

    Simplify.

    5x - 0 = -4

    5x = -4

    Divide both sides by 5.

    x = -4/5

    So, our x-intercept is -4/5

    * Remember, ALWAYS make y = 0 when solving for the x-intercept*

    ~Hope I helped!~
