A visual explanation of how to graph a line using x and y intercepts.

Tutorial

• Y Axis - The vertical line through the middle of the coordinate plane.

• X Axis - The horizontal line through the middle of the coordinate plane.

• Intercept - An intercept is the coordinate or point where a line or curve intersects the x or y axis.

• X Intercept - Where the line crosses the x axis.

• Y Intercept - Where the line crosses the y axis.

• Linear equation - An algebraic equation where the terms are either a constant, a single variable, or the product of a constant and a variable.
