## How do you find the X intercept when given two points?

How to Find the X and Y Intercept of a Line ( Example 2 ) –

## How do you solve for intercepts?

**Finding x-intercepts and y-intercepts**

- To determine the x-intercept, we set y equal to zero and solve for x. Similarly, to determine the y-intercept, we set x equal to zero and solve for y.
- To find the x-intercept, set y = 0 \displaystyle y=0 y=0.
- To find the y-intercept, set x = 0 \displaystyle x=0 x=0.

## How do you find the x intercept of a quadratic equation?

To find the x-intercepts of a quadratic equation, let y = 0. Write down the new equation ax squared + bx + c = 0 and the quadratic formula that gives the solution as x = -b plus or minus the square root of (b squared – 4ac), all divided by 2a.

## How do you find an unknown y intercept?

To find the y-intercept, calculate and , the average of the x- and y-values respectively. Then substitute these two values for x and y in the = b + a equation. Finally, solve for the unknown quantity a.

## How do you find the intercept on a graph?

Finding y intercept from a graph –

## How do I find the second X intercept of a parabola?

To find the x-intercept let y = 0 and solve for x. You can solve for x by using the square root principle or the quadratic formula (if you simplify the problem into the correct form). In this case, we end up with the square root of a negative number, so there are no x-intercepts.

## How do you find the x intercept and y intercept?

**College Algebra**

- To determine the x-intercept, we set y equal to zero and solve for x. Similarly, to determine the y-intercept, we set x equal to zero and solve for y.
- To find the x-intercept, set y = 0 \displaystyle y=0 y=0.
- To find the y-intercept, set x = 0 \displaystyle x=0 x=0.

## WHAT IS A in vertex form?

The vertex form of a quadratic is given by. y = a(x – h)2 + k, where (h, k) is the vertex. The “a” in the vertex form is the same “a” as. in y = ax2 + bx + c (that is, both a’s have exactly the same value). The sign on “a” tells you whether the quadratic opens up or opens down.
