Intercepts An Introduction Copyright 2014 Scott Storla The y-intercept of a function is the ordered pair when x is 0. An x-intercept of a function is any ordered pair when y is 0. Although the x-intercept and the y-intercept are ordered pairs, in practice 0, 8 people often refer to just the x-coordinate of the x intercept or just the y-coordinate of the y-intercept. 6, 0 Copyright 2014 Scott Storla Copyright 2014 Scott Storla Time traveling in car (hours) Distance from home (miles) 0 0 288 288 2.25 172 4.5 81 6 6 0 Copyright 2014 Scott Storla What is the general meaning of the y-intercept?

To find the x-intercept(s) of an equation substitute 0 for y and solve for x. The function y 6 .5 x 2 0 returns y, the profit (in dollars) made from a car wash, given x, the number of cars that have been washed. W h a t's th e sp e cific m e a n in g o f th e y-in te rce p t?
