There are two kinds of intercepts X Intercept and Y Intercept of any equation. X Intercept, Y Intercept are the points where the graph of the equation touches the X-axis and Y-axis respectively. The online tool used to find the intercept of a given equation is called as the Intercept calculator.

Example 1: Find the intercept of the equation 3 X + 2 Y = 6

Given equation of the straight line is 3 X + 4 Y = 12

X intercept is the point on X axis hence Y = 0.

This gives 3 X + 2 * 0 = 6; 3 X = 6   X = 2.

Y intercept is the point on Y axis hence X = 0.

This gives 3 * 0 + 2 * Y = 6; 2 Y = 6   Y = 3.

Hence the intercept of the given straight line is (2, 0) and (0, 3).

 
Example 2: Find the intercept of the equation 5 X - Y = 5

Given equation of the straight line is 5 X - Y = 5

X intercept is the point on X axis hence Y = 0.

This gives 5 X - 0 = 5; 5 X = 5   X = 1.

Y intercept is the point on Y axis hence X = 0.

This gives 5 * 0 - Y = 5; -Y = 5   Y = -5.

Hence the intercept of the given straight line is (1, 0) and (0, -5).
