# What is the X intercept form?

**x**-

**intercept**is a point in the equation where the y-value is zero, and. a y-

**intercept**is a point in the equation where the

**x**-value is zero.

Also know, what is the x intercept in an equation?

**X**-**Intercept**. A linear **equation** has the form y = mx + b, where M and B are constants. The **x**-**intercept** is the point where the line crosses the **x**-axis. By definition, the y-value of a linear **equation** when it crosses the **x**-axis will always be 0, since the **x**-axis is stationed at y = 0 on a graph.

One may also ask, where is the x intercept? The **intercepts** of a graph are points at which the graph crosses the axes. The **x**-**intercept** is the point at which the graph crosses the **x**-axis. At this point, the y-coordinate is zero. The y-**intercept** is the point at which the graph crosses the y-axis.

Just so, what is the intercept form?

The **intercept form** of the line is the equation of the line segment based on the **intercepts** with both axes. a is the x-**intercept**. b is the y-**intercept**. a and b must be nonzero.

What is the X intercept of a parabola?

The **x** -**intercepts** are the points at which the **parabola** crosses the **x** -axis. If they exist, the **x** -**intercepts** represent the zeros, or roots, of the quadratic function, the values of **x** at which y=0 .
