Line with x-intercept or y-intercept or both

by a Visitor

Question
Does a line need to have both the x-intercept and y-intercept? Why?

Answer
This depends on how the line looks like. Now, if the line is parallel to the x-axis, it has only y-intercept as shown below:

y-intercept

If the line is parallel to the y-axis, then it will have only x-intercept as shown below:

x-intercept

Finally, if the line is slanted, it will have both the x-intercept and y-intercept. This is shown below:

x-intercept


Hope this helps...
