The x-intercept is the x-value point where the relation or function of a graph intersects or cuts the x-axis of the system of coordinate. The y-intercept is the y-value point where the relation or function of a graph intersects or cuts the y-axis of the system of coordinate.
X and Y Intercept Calculator calculates the x-intercept and y-intercept when the coefficients of the straight line equation are given.

For example, To find the x and y intercept for x + 2y = 4 using X and Y Intercept Calculator. We have to just enter 1, 2 and 4 and click calculate button, then the calculator will automatically show the output as x intercept = (4, 0) and y intercept = (0, 2).

Steps for X and Y Intercept Calculator

Step 1 :

Observe the given straight line and note down the values of the coefficients and constants.

Step 2 :

To find x-intercept:

• Put y=0 in the given equation and then solve for x using inverse-operation.

• The x-intercept is ( x value , 0 ).

To find y-intercept:

• Put x=0 in the given equation and then solve for y using inverse-operation.

• The y-intercept is ( 0 , y-value ).

Problems on X and Y Intercept Calculator

1. Find the x-intercept and y-intercept of 2x + y = 4?

Step 1 :

Given equation: 2x + y = 4

Step 2 :

To find x-intercept:

Put y=0 in the given equation: 2x + y = 4

$\Rightarrow$ 2x + (0) = 4

$\Rightarrow$ 2x = 4

$\Rightarrow$ x = $\frac{4}{2}$ = 2

find y-intercept:

Put x=0 in the given equation: 2x + y = 4

$\Rightarrow$ 2(0) + y = 4

$\Rightarrow$ 0 + y = 4

$\Rightarrow$ y = 4

x-intercept = (2, 0)

y-intercept = (0, 4)

2. Find the x-intercept and y-intercept of x + 3y = 6?

Step 1 :

Given equation: x + 3y = 6

Step 2 :

To find x-intercept:

Put y=0 in the given equation: x + 3y = 6

$\Rightarrow$ x + 3(0) = 6

$\Rightarrow$ x = 6

To find y-intercept:

Put x=0 in the given equation: x + 3y = 6

$\Rightarrow$ (0) + 3y = 6

$\Rightarrow$ 3y = 6

$\Rightarrow$ $\frac{6}{3}$ = 2
