X and Y intercept form calculator finds the point of intersection of a line on the cartesian coordinates using the coefficients of the equation of the line. This calculator evaluates the x-intercept and y-intercept of the given equation. This method of the equation of the line finds the values without using the slope of the line.

In mathematics, the intercept is a point where the line crosses the ordinate. The intercept has two types known as X and Y intercepts. The X intercept of a line indicates the point of intersection on the abscissa, whereas the y-intercept indicates the same on the y-axis.

Try our X and Y intercept form calculator to calculate it. Or follow the following steps to calculate it manually.

- First of all, check whether the equation is linear or not.
- After checking the linearity re-arrange the equation in Ax + By + C = 0 form.
- For the x-intercept put y = 0 in the equation and calculate it using specific arithmetic operations.
- For the y-intercept, put x=0 and calculate it.

The following examples will help you to understand the procedure more clearly.

**Example 1:**

Calculate the X and Y intercepts of the equation 8x + 2y + 4 = 0

**Solution:**

The given equation is 8x + 2y+ 4 = 0

**Step 1:** Check the linearity:

The maximum power of the given equation is “1” so it is linear.

As the equation is already arranged so we’ll move toward the calculations.

**For x-intercept:**

8x + 2y+ 4 = 0

8x + 2y = - 4

Putt y = 0

8x + 2(0) = - 4

8x + 0 = 4

8x = 4

x = 4/8

**x = ½ or 0.50**

**For y-intercept:**

8x + 2y+ 4 = 0

Put x = 0,

8 (0) + 2y = 4

0 + 2y = 4

2y = 4

**Y = 4/2 or 2**

**The intercepts are (0.50, 2) **

**Example 2:**

Calculate the X and Y intercepts of the equation if A = 4, B = 9 and C = 1

**Solution:**

The given points are A = 4, B = 9 and C = 1

**The general formula for the equation of a line is: **

Ax + By + C = 0

Put the points in the above formula we get:

4x + 9y + 1 = 0

**For x-intercept:**

4x + 9y = -1

Put y = 0

4x + 9(0) = -1

4x = -1

**X = -1/4 **

**For y-intercept:**

4x + 9y = -1

Put x = 0

4 (0) + 9y = -1

0 + 9y = -1

9y = -1

**Y = -1/9 **

**The intercepts are (-1/4, -1/9)**
