Recall, the x-intercept of a function is when the function crosses the x-axis. This happens when y=0. Thus, we can find the x-intercept by plugging y=0 into the function and solving for x. -2x + 3y = 18 -2x + 3(0) = 18 -2x + 0 = 18 -2x = 18 x = -9 Thus, our x-intercept occurs when x = -9 and y=0, OR (-9,0).
an object will land at the x intercept of -2x+3y=18
