# Reduce the equation 3x + 2y – 12 = 0 into intercept form and find their intercepts on the axes.

Answer :

Equation of line in intercept form is given by, where ‘a’ and ‘b’ are intercepts on x axis and y – axis respectively.

Given equation is 3x + 2y – 12 = 0

Dividing both sides by 12, we get

⇒

The above equation is of the form, where a = 4, b = 6

Intercept on x – axis = 4

Intercept on y – axis = 6
