# How do you find the x and y intercepts of #f(x)=4x-1#?

An x-intercept occurs where y = 0; a y-intercept occurs where x = 0.

#### Explanation:

Given y = 4x - 1

If x = 0, what value does y have?

If y = 0, we have 4x - 1 = 0. Solve this for x. What value does x have?

These are the two intercepts.
