# What are the intercepts of #-x+3y=-3#?

##### 1 Answer

The x-intercept is

The y-intercept is

#### Explanation:

Given:

**X-intercept: value of #x# when #y=0#.**

Substitute

Multiply both sides by

**The x-intercept is #(3,0)#.**

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

**Y-intercept: value of #y# when #x=0#**

Substitute

Divide both sides by

**The y-intercept is #(0,-1)#.**

You can graph this equation by plotting the x- and y-intercepts and drawing a straight line through them.
