For each of the following equations, find every point where its three-dimensional graph intersects one of the coordinate axes. That is, find the x-, y- and z-intercepts. Express your answer in form.

  1. To find the intercept of a given axis, set all other variables to zero.
    For example, the y-intercept will be .
    To find the y-intercept, let and .

    Repeat the process to find the z-intercept. .


  2. See part (a).

  3. See part (a).
    Note: You will have two x-intercepts and two z-intercepts. Why?

  4. See part (a).
