The Standard Form for a linear equation in two variables, x and y, is Ax + By = C .
~~~~~~~~~~
y - 10 = 2(x - 8)
y - 10 = 2x - 16
-2x + y = -16 + 10
-2x + y = -6 , let's multiply equation by (-1) 2x - y = 6 - standard form of given equation.
coordinate of x-intercept is (x , 0) ----> 2x - 0 = 6 ---> x = 3
(3 , 0)
coordinate of y-intercept is (0 , y) ----> 2*0 - y = 6 ----> y= -6
(0 , -6)
