In this lesson, you will learn how to quickly graph linear equations using intercepts. The intercepts are the points at which the line intersects the x and y axes, and exploiting the number zero makes the math easier. By finding the intercepts, you can draw a straight line on the coordinate plane, and it only takes two points to do so. With this shortcut, you can save time and eliminate the need for fractions in your equations.
