Calculation:
Consider, the equation, \(\displaystyle{y}={12}-{5}{x}\),
To compute x-intercept, put \(\displaystyle{y}={0}\).
\(\displaystyle{0}={12}-{5}{x}\)
Subtract by 12, this gives,
\(\displaystyle{0}-{12}={12}-{5}{x}-{12}\)
\(\displaystyle-{12}=-{5}{x}\)
Divide the equation by -5,
\(\displaystyle{\frac{{-{5}{x}}}{{-{5}}}}={\frac{{-{12}}}{{-{5}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle{x}={\frac{{{12}}}{{{5}}}}\)
So, the x-intercept is \(\displaystyle{\left({\frac{{{12}}}{{{5}}}},{0}\right)}\).
To compute y-intercept, put \(\displaystyle{x}={0}\).
\(\displaystyle{y}={12}-{5}{\left({0}\right)}={12}\)
So, the y-intercept is(0,12).
Hence, the x and y-intercepts of \(\displaystyle{y}={12}-{5}{x}{\left({\frac{{{12}}}{{{5}}}},{0}\right)}\) and(0,12),respectively.
