X Intercept Calculator

Top

The point in the graph where equation of line crosses the x-axis, i.e., y = 0 is known as x intercept. X intercept is in the form, (x, 0). Here, the standard equation of the line is in the form Ax + By = C. Plug in the equation of line, x-intercept is determined by this online X intercept calculator.

 

Steps

Below are some of the problems based on X intercept.

Solved Examples

Question 1: Find the x-intercept of 3x + 4y = 12.
Solution:
Step 1 : Given : 3x + 4y = 12.

Step 2 : To determine the x-intercept, put y = 0,
3x + 4(0) = 12
3x + 0 = 12
3x = 12
x = 4

Therefore, x-intercept of the given equation is (4, 0).


Question 2: Find the x-intercept of 4x + 9y = 36.
Solution:
Step 1 : Given : 4x + 9y = 36.

Step 2 : To determine the x-intercept, put y = 0,
4x + 9(0) = 36
4x + 0 = 36
4x = 36
x = 9
 
Therefore, x-intercept of the given equation is (9, 0).
