G Guest Guest Sep 26, 2005 #2 x=3y the y intercept occurs when x=0 0=3y --means y = 0 point is (0,0) the xitercept occurs when y=0 x= 3(0) -- means x=0 point is (0,0) for x=7, there is no x intercept (ie at no point x=0)

x=3y the y intercept occurs when x=0 0=3y --means y = 0 point is (0,0) the xitercept occurs when y=0 x= 3(0) -- means x=0 point is (0,0) for x=7, there is no x intercept (ie at no point x=0)
