The equation y = ½x – 4 defines a straight line graph.At what point will the graph pass through the x-axis? what are the coordinates of the intersection with the x-axis

Answers

Answer:

Step-by-step explanation:

The x-axis refers to the horizontal line that goes from left to right on a coordinate plane, AKA y=0.

Set y=0 for the equation y = ½x – 4

0 = ½x – 4

Bring over the negative 4 from the right side to the left by adding 4 to each side

4 = ½x

Multiply both side by 2 to get rid of the ½ (Remember, we want x by itself)

8 = x

Plug your new acquired x value (x = 8) to the original function ( y = ½x – 4)

y = ½(8) – 4

y = 4-4

y = 0

You’re coordinate on where the line intersects the x-axis should be (8,0)
