M. Pickens 2006 Intercepts

2
M. Pickens 2006 Objectives To learn what intercepts are To learn how to find x and y-intercepts of a graph To learn how to find x and y-intercepts of an equation To use x and y-intercepts to sketch a graph

3
M. Pickens 2006 What are intercepts? An intercept is where something intersects or touches For example, an x-intercept is where it touches the x-axis a y-intercept is where it touches the y-axis

4
M. Pickens 2006 Intercepts of a Graph What are the x- intercept and y- intercept of the graph at right? X-intercept: Y-intercept: Where it touches the x-axis x (5, 0) Where it touches the y-axis y (0, 7)

5
M. Pickens 2006 Intercepts of a Graph What are the x- intercept and y- intercept of the graph at right? X-intercept: Y-intercept: Where it touches the x-axis x (-8, 0) Where it touches the y-axis y (0, 6)

6
M. Pickens 2006 Intercepts of a Graph What are the x and y-intercepts of the graphs below? X-intercept: Y-intercept: X-intercept: Y-intercept: (3, 0) (0, -8) (-9, 0) (0, -5) Notice: For all the x-intercepts the y-coordinate is ____ For all the y-intercepts the x-coordinate is ____ 0 0

7
M. Pickens 2006 Which are which? Which of the coordinates below are x-intercepts? Which of the coordinates below are y-intercepts? R(3, 5)S(0, 9)T(-2, 0)U(0, 1)V(15, 0) W(0, 0) X( ½, 0) Y(0, 8)Z(1, 0.5) T, V, W, X S, U, W, Y

M. Pickens 2006 Sketching a Graph from Intercepts Find the intercept of the equation and sketch the graph X-intercept: (Plug in 0 for y) x = 6 (6, 0) Y-intercept: (Plug in 0 for x) y = 0 – 3 y = -3 (0, -3) + 3 +3 2* *2

13
M. Pickens 2006 Slope Intercept Form Notice when an equation is in slope intercept form ( y = mx + b) the b is always the y intercept Examples: Y= 5x + 8, 8 is the y-intercept What is the y-intercept in the equation Y= 1/4x + 3 ?
