Experienced Teacher + Your Effort = SUCCESS!!!!

The X-intercept is where the line you draw crosses the X-axis (the horizontal line). The Y-intercept is where the line you draw crosses the Y-axis (the vertical line). Remember, the center point of the grid is "0". On the X axis, numbers to the right of the zero are positive, and to the left they are negative. On the Y axis, numbers above the 0 are positive, and below the zero are negative.

Do you also need to know how to write the equation in standard form, or do you have that covered already?
