Question

Find the ordered pairs for the x- and y-intercepts of the equation 5x − 6y = 30 and select the appropriate option below.

The x-intercept is (6, 0), the y-intercept is (0, –5).

The x-intercept is (0, 6); the y-intercept is (–5, 0).

The x-intercept is (5, 0); the y-intercept is (0, –6).

The x-intercept is (0, 5); the y-intercept is (–6, 0).

## Answers ( No )

5x – 6y = 30

6y = 5x – 30

Y = 5/6x – 5

y intercept = -5

Therefore (0, -5)

0 = 5/6x – 5

5/6x = 5

x = 6

x intercept = 6

therefore (6,0)

answer : first one

x intercept =

For finding the x intercept

y=0, 5x-6*0=30, x=30:5, x= 6 ⇒

(6,0)- the x interceptfor y intercept, x=0

5*0-6y=30, -6y=30, y= – 30/6, y= – 5 ⇒

(0, -5 ) – the y interceptthe first is correct answer
