x-intercept

x-intercept

An x-intercept is a location where a graph crosses the x-axis. As a coordinate pair, this point will always have the form (x, 0). x-intercepts are also called solutions, roots or zeros.
y-intercept

y-intercept

A y-intercept is a location where a graph crosses the y-axis. As a coordinate pair, this point will always have the form (0, y).
Intercept

Intercept

The intercepts of a curve are the locations where the curve intersects the x and y axes. An x intercept is a point at which the curve intersects the x-axis. A y intercept is a point at which the curve intersects the y-axis.
Intercept Method

Intercept Method

The intercept method is a way of graphing a linear function by using the coordinates of the x and y-intercepts. The graph is drawn by plotting these coordinates on the Cartesian plane and then joining them with a straight line.
