A line has the equation 4y + 3x - 4 = 0. What is the x and y intercept.

### 1 Answer | Add Yours

The equation of the line is 4y + 3x - 4 = 0. If the x-intercept of the line is a and the y-intercept is b it can be written in the form: `x/a + y/b = 1` .

4y + 3x - 4 = 0

=> 4y + 3x = 4

=> `y + x/(4/3) = 1`

Here, a = `4/3` and b = 1

**The x-intercept of the line is `4/3` and the y-intercept is 1.**
