Introduction: Intercepts of Lines

Introduction to Module 3.2: Intercepts of Lines

In this module you will be focus on the mathematical content of intercepts of lines, including the following skills:

  • Finding x- and y- intercepts given a linear equation in the form Ax + By = C
  • Using x- and y- intercepts to graph a line
