As written this is not a graphable thing. I does not represent a graphable equation because there is no "=" sign. Whatever the equation might be, the x intercept is found by setting y=0, which leaves you with an equation for x, which is the intercept.

First, put the equation in slope-intervcept form y=mx + b 5y=4x + 40 The y intercept is where x=0 so- 5y= 4(0) +40 solve for y y intercept = (0,8) For the x intercept, y=0 0=4x+40 -4x=40 x= -10 xintercept =( -10.0)

To find the x-intercept for 5x - 4y = 18, plug in a 0 for the y value and solve for x. 5x - 4(0) = 18 5x = 18 x = 18/5 or 3.6 The line will hit the x-axis at (3.6,0)

A line of best-fit.

If there is an actual physical line on the floor, and you are on it, then you are on line. If you are in a line of people, you are in line. If you are in a line of people, and also standing on a physical line on the floor, then you are both in and on line. If there is a group of people, standing in a line, and you are standing on top of the group of people standing in line, then you are standing on line.
