Your Turn This needs to be on Graph Paper
Your Turn • Sarah rented a van to take the CR disk golf team to Crescent City for a match. The vehicle had a full tank and 13,741 miles on the odometer when she picked it up on March 1. On March 4, she returned the van with 14,014 miles on the odometer and used 13 gallons of fuel.

Finding Intercepts • x-intercept: The x-intercept is where the graph crosses the x-axis. The y value is 0 at the x-intercept. • y-intercept: The y-intercept is where the graph crosses the y-axis. The y value is 0 at the y-intercept.
y (0, 3) y-intercept x-intercept (6, 0) x Example
Using Intercepts to Graph • To find the y-intercept, replace x with 0 and solve for y. • To find the x-intercept, replace y with 0 and solve for x. • Example: Find the intercepts of the graph of
