# How to determine the x-intercept and the y-intercept of a line on a graph?

An intercept is the point of intersection of the line with the coordinate of x and y axes.

## Answer: The x-intercept and y-intercept are those points in a graph at which a line or a curve intersects the x-axis and y-axis respectively.

Let us solve it step by step.

**Explanation:**

x-intercept and y-intercept are shown below in the graph:

Given: x-intercept is 6 and y-intercept is 3 represent these intercepts on the graph.

Here we can see that the line intersects the x-axis and y-axis at 6 and -3 respectively.

Thus, the x-intercept and y-intercept of the above graph are 6 and -3 respectively.

### Therefore, x-intercept and y-intercept are those points in a graph at which a line or a curve intersects the x-axis and y-axis respectively.
