A straight line can be represented in the form of a liner equation containing two variables x and y. When the equation is graphed on a pair of coordinate axes, the line passes cut through the axes in two points. The point where the line cuts the xaxes is called as its x coordinate and the point where the line cuts the yaxes is called as its y coordinate. In this way a line has xintercept and yintercept. The xintercept of a line lies on x axes and is in the form (a,0). Similarly the yintercept is in the form (0,b). To find the xintercept of a line, substitute y = 0 in the equation of the line and solve for x. Similarly to find the yintercept, substitute x = 0 in the equation of the line and solve for y. This video teaches xintercept and yintercept.
