What statement is true about a graph of an inversely proportional relationship there is no x intercept and no y intercept there is only a x intercept there is only a y intercept or there is both x an?

The graph doesn't intersect either axis.

What is true about direct variation?

It has a x and y intercept

True or false given a linear equation in two variables x and y the x intercept is found by setting x equal to zero and solving for y?

False. To find the x-intercept, let y = 0 and solve for x. To find the y-intercept, let x = 0 and solve for y.

Why is it true that at x-intercept the value of y is 0 and at y-intercept the value of x is 0?


What is the x-intercept and y-intercept of the equation y equals -x-1?

To find the x-intercept, plug 0 in for y: 0 = -x-1, so x = -1. To find the y-intercept, plug zero in for x: y=-0-1, so y = -1 The x-intercept is (0,-1) and the y-intercept is (-1,0)

What is the slope and y-intercept and x-intercept of y equals -x plus 1?

Slope is -1 y-intercept is 1 x-intercept is 1

What is the difference between the x- intercept and the y- intercept?

The y-intercept is where the line crosses the y-axis, and the x-intercept is where the line cross the x-axis

What if a graph has no x- or y-intercept Will what you say about the line always be true in that situation?

It could be a line segment within a quadrant that does not have an x or y intercept Or a graph with a restricted domain, for example, y = 1/x where x>0

What is the x intercept and the y intercept of x-9y equals 18?

x - 9y = 18At the x-intercept, y=0 :x = 18At the y-intercept, x=0 :-9y = 18-y = 2y = -2

What is the coordinates of x and y intercept of x-3 equals y?

x - 3 = y-- At the x-intercept, y=0.x - 3 = 0x = 3The x-intercept is the point (3, 0).-- At the y-intercept, x=0.0 -3 = yy = -3The y-intercept is the point (0, -3).

What is the slope and y-intercept and x-intercept of y equals -7?

Slope is zero y-intercept is -7 there is no x-intercept for this equation

What is the meaning of y-intercept is twice the x-intercept?

y intercept is value of y when x = 0 x intercept is value of x when y = 0 if y intercept is twice x intercept then its value is twice as high Mathematically, the standard form equation is y = mx + b where m = slope and b = y intercept for x intercept let y = 0 0 = mx + b x = -b/m = 1/2 y intercept = 1/2 time b m = -2 y = -2x + b is the equation
