intercept

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

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

Intercept

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

Intercept Method

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