You simply have to set $y=0$ and then solve for $x$.</p>
<p><strong><span style="color:#8e44ad;">Example 1</span></strong></p>
<p>What is the $x$-intercept of a line with the equation $y = 3x -6$? Let's just set $y = 0$ and solve:</p>
<p>$$0=3x-6$$</p>
<p>$$6=3x$$</p>
<p>$$x=2$$</p>
<p><strong><span style="color:#8e44ad;">Example 2</span></strong></p>
<p>What is the $x$-intercept of a line with the equation $3x-2y=7$? Let's just set $y = 0$ and solve:</p>
<p>$$3x-2(0)=7$$</p>
<p>$$3x=7$$</p>
<p>$$x= \frac{7}{3}$$</p>
