# What are the x and y intercepts of the linear equation: #-y=(3x+6)-12#?

##### 2 Answers

y-int = 6

x-int = 2

#### Explanation:

first remove the parentheses:

combine like terms

multiply both sides by -1

to find the y-intercept set x = 0

to find the x-intercept set y = 0

graph{y=-3x+6 [-13.71, 14.77, -6.72, 7.52]}

#### Explanation:

First let's restate the equation in more common form.

(i) The parentheses are serving on purpose here.

(ii) Multiply through by

Here we have the equation in slope/intercept form:

Hence the

The

These intercepts can be seen on the graph of

graph{-y =(3x+6)-12 [-16.03, 16.01, -8, 8.03]}
