intercept

  

compute the points of intersection of two curves

 

Calling Sequence

Parameters

Description

Examples

Calling Sequence

intercept(eqn1)

intercept(eqn1, eqn2, {x, y})

Parameters

eqn[1], eqn[2]

-

bivariate equations (for example, y=x2+3)

x, y

-

(optional) the coordinate variables

Description

• 

Important: The student package has been deprecated. Use the superseding package Student instead.

• 

Compute the points corresponding to the intersection of the two curves defined by eqn1 and eqn2.

• 

If only one equation is given, the y-intercept (the intercept with x=0) is returned. In this case, the dependent variable should appear alone on the left-hand side of the given equation as in y=3x+5.

• 

An optional third argument may be used to indicate the set of coordinate variables.

• 

The command with(student,intercept) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command.

Examples

withstudent:

intercepty=x+5

x=0,y=5

(1)

intercepty=x+5,y=0

x=5,y=0

(2)

intercepty+4=x+5,x=0

x=0,y=1

(3)

intercepty=ax+b,x=0,x,y

x=0,y=b

(4)
