# Graphing linear equations using x and y intercepts Step by step

Learn how to graph linear equations using x and y intercepts. This is a lesson that is covered in Grade 8 under linear equations. Recall that the xintercept is the point where the graph intersects the x-axis and the y intercept is the point where it intersects the y-axis. To find the x intercept, set y = 0, then solve for x. To find the y-intercept, set x = 0, then solve for y. After obtaining the values of the x-intercept and the y-intercept, we plot the points on the coordinate plane and then draw a line passing through the points.
