Intercepts, Mathematics

The last topic that we want to discuss in this section is that of intercepts.  Notice that the graph in the above instance crosses the x-axis in two places & the y-axis in one place. All three of these points are called as intercepts.  However , we can, and frequently will be, more specific.

We frequently will desire to know if an intercept crosses specifically the x or y-axis.
