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

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.
