y = - 6 5 x + 6
The x-intercept is the value of x when y is zero.
Substitute 0 for y in the equation.
0 = - 6 5 x + 6
Subtract 6 from both sides of the equation.
- 6 = - 6 5 x + 6 - 6 =
- 6 = - 6 5 x
Divide by - 6 5 on both sides. When dividing by a fraction, multiply times its reciprocal.
- 6 1 ( - 5 6 1 ) = - 6 1 5 1 x ( - 5 1 6 1 )
5=x
Switch sides.
x=5
