# Intercepts of $$$x^{2} + y^{2} = 9$$$

### Your Input

**Find find the x- and y-intercepts of $$$x^{2} + y^{2} = 9$$$.**

### Solution

To find the x-intercepts, substitute $$$y = 0$$$ into the equation and solve the resulting equation $$$x^{2} = 9$$$ for $$$x$$$ (use the equation solver).

To find the y-intercepts, substitute $$$x = 0$$$ into the equation and solve the resulting equation $$$y^{2} = 9$$$ for $$$y$$$ (use the equation solver).

### Answer

**x-intercepts: $$$\left(-3, 0\right)$$$, $$$\left(3, 0\right)$$$.**

**y-intercepts: $$$\left(0, -3\right)$$$, $$$\left(0, 3\right)$$$.**
