    Question 24

    Let y = 0

    0 = 8 - 3x

    -8 = -3x

    -8/-3 = x

    8/3 = x

    The x-intercept is 8/3. Can the x-intercept be expressed as a point (8/3, 0)?

    Let x = 0

    y = 8 - 3(0)

    y = 8 - 0

    y = 8

    The y-intercept is 8. Can the y-intercept be expressed as a point (0, 8)?

    correct

    yes, the x-intercept be expressed as a point (8/3, 0) and the y-intercept be expressed as a point (0, 8)

    Thanks. I am actually working but it's very quiet here on Monday nights due to the fact that most employees are still working from home especially in Chicago, NY and California. Interesting huh?
