## Find the points at which the line $ax+by+c=0$ crosses the $x$ and $y$-axes. Assume that $a\ne 0$ and $b\ne 0$.solve the equation $ax+by+c=0$ for $y$:$ax+by+c=0$$ax+by=-c$$by=-ax-c$$y=\frac{-ax-c}{b}$$\because x=0$ at $y$-intercept,$\therefore y=\frac{-a\left(0\right)}{b}-\frac{c}{b}$$y=-\frac{c}{b}$The point at which the line crosses the y-axis is $\left(0,-\frac{c}{b}\right)$Now we solve the equation $ax+by+c=0$ for $x$:$ax+by+c=0$$ax+by=-c$$ax=-by-c$$x=\frac{-by-c}{a}$$\because y=0$ at $x$-intercept$\therefore x=\frac{-b\left(0\right)}{a}-\frac{c}{a}$$x=-\frac{c}{a}$The point at which the line crosses the $x$-axis is $\left(-\frac{c}{a},0\right)$

## Determine the values of $a$ and $b$ for which the line $\left(a+2b-3\right)x+\left(2a-b+1\right)y+6a+9=0$ is parallel to $x$ axis and $y$-intercept is $-3$. Also write the equation of the line.here is what i have tried.$eq:\left(a+2b-3\right)x+\left(2a-b+1\right)y+6a+9=0$ Let the point be $\left(0,-3\right)$Since the line is parallel to $x$ axis therefore slope of line $=$ slope of $x$-axis$-\left(a+2b-3\right)/\left(2a-b+1\right)$$2a-b+1=0$Now what?

## Let $p$ be a positive constant and consider the parabola ${x}^{2}=4py$ with vertex at the origin and focus at the point ($0$, $p$). (a) Show that the tangent line at (${x}_{0}$, ${y}_{0}$) has y-intercept ${y}_{0}$.What I try:1. the slope formula (i) 𝑦$y-{y}_{0}=m\left(x-{x}_{0}\right)$2. $m=$ $\frac{dy}{dx}\frac{{x}^{2}}{4p}=\frac{x}{2p}$Evaluated m when $x={x}_{0}$$m=$ $\frac{{x}_{0}}{2p}$Replaced $m$ in (i) $y=\frac{{x}_{0}}{2p}\left(x-{x}_{0}\right)+{y}_{0}$In order to get the y-intercept, I evaluated $x=0$$y=\frac{{x}_{0}^{2}}{2p}+{y}_{0}$What is missing?

## How do I find the y intercept for $P\left(x\right)=\left(x-1{\right)}^{2}\left(x-3\right)$?

Finding y-intercept is much easier when you have a list of questions and answers that will help you understand the point where a line, curve, or surface would intersect the y-axis. If you need assistance with the graphical aspect of things, you should explore various y-intercept questions and answers that we have. Some of them are related to high school studies where graphs and finding of coordinates must be achieved, while others will relate to engineering tasks that you might find useful when you need to combine calculations with the graphical part of your lab reports or scientific statistical data.
